The University of Minnesota Farmers Market wrapped up its eighth season on Wednesday, October 10, 2012. The market featured Twin Cities-area vendors who travel 2.5 hours or less to deliver and sell everything from berries to sweet corn to tomatoes to squash. As is the tradition, the market is held rain or shine, every Wednesday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Next summer, it will begin again on July 10. It is located on the Church Street pedestrian mall, East Bank campus.
