The Midtown Farmers Market was founded by the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization in 2003 with the help of many community partners and volunteers from the surrounding neighborhoods. Today’s open-air farmers market is the result of their vision to create a public marketplace at the transportation hub created by the Hiawatha light rail station at Lake Street/Midtown. Each year over 55,000 people visit the market. In 2006, it was the first Minnesota farmers market to accept SNAP-EBT.
