As summer rolls on and vacations wind down, we are slowly reminded that back to school is around the corner. All the more reason to enjoy what’s left of summer at the Midtown Farmers Market. Come and enjoy some of the great programming we have this month. On August 6th the Market will host additional food trucks for a second, more accessible iteration of our Food Truck Fest. On August 13th we ask you all to show your support of the market and #FeedtheCarrot. The Market is always looking for volunteers to help with fundraising effort. If you’re interested in pitching in, email our Assistant Manager, Mallory, at [email protected]. Then on August 20th we will celebrate the Latino Community in South Minneapolis with our 3rd Annual Festival del Maíz. The day will include music from Alma Andina and Javier Trejo, dance with Ketzalcoatlicue, a seed art activity with local artist Tammy Ortegón, a Midtown Flavors cooking demo, a special guest vendor Ricardo Levins Morales, and we will continue with the 4th installment of our Summer Poetry Series featuring local poet Teresa Ortiz, thanks to Wellington Management. Be sure to check it out! Midtown will also host our third and final blood drive with Memorial Blood Centers on August 27th.
