Every vendor is required to display signage featuring the Minneapolis Farmers Market logo that indicates whether they are a local grower, producer or manufacturer or a Minneapolis licensed reseller.

Are organic products available?

We know our customers have individual needs and commitments when it comes to their food, and our vendors offer a wide variety of products to meet those needs. Some offer organic products. Some follow organic growing methods but haven’t gone through the official screening process to be able to use the organic classification. If you’d like more information about the products you find at our Market, feel free to ask our vendors. They love to talk with visitors about their products.

The Nicollet Mall does not supply ATM services but we’d recommend checking out the skyway or neighboring businesses to get access to public ATMS.
