Last updated July 6, 2016

Ever wish grocery shopping was a more fun and unique experience?  Local farmers markets can help make that happen. From fresh produce to organic coffee, and homemade bread and jam–all of these things can be found at the farmers markets. And it’s more than just food… some vendors sell clothes, jewelry, and unique art too. One of the best parts about farmers markets is getting to know the producers/vendors and hearing their stories…it makes it feel like more of a social event than a shopping trip. The Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo area has a great selection of farmers markets. The produce found at these markets is ripe & fresh and ready to be enjoyed. Corn on the cob, new potatoes, green beans, peas, and fresh herbs are just some of the great items you will find at the markets. Most farmers markets continue through the month of September and some go into the beginning of October. Visiting a farmers market can be an afternoon or evening outing–a way to get out and enjoy the weather and pick up a few treats while you’re at it!
