About Richfield Farmers Market

Location:

6335 Portland Ave, Richfield, MN 55423, US

Mission Statement

Since 1990, Richfield Recreation Services has coordinated the Richfield Farmers Market in Veterans Memorial Park to provide access to local, healthy, and affordable foods. We offer this transformative gathering space where long-term sustaining connections between MN farmers & producers, community members, and neighbor to neighbor relationships are strengthened. The Market emphasizes educational and recreational activities to promote active living and community enrichment.

Description

The Richfield Farmers Market has a long tradition of offering locally grown produce and products to the Richfield community. The market is held at one of the best locations in the twin cities, in Veterans Memorial Park (64th Street & Portland Ave S), under the wooden picnic pavilion and in the adjacent park space.
A diverse group of 60+ different local farmers, food producers, and artisans come to sell at the market, many of who have been selling with us for 10-20+years. Live music, yoga classes, food access programs, educational community booths, special event days and more give the farmers market a fun atmosphere, while retaining it's essential mission as a marketplace and community gathering space.

Besides the market, the park offers plenty of other fun activities like walking trails through a wooded area and wetland, a mini golf course, Malt-T-Melt's café, and adaptive playground. The farmers market site is accessible, with paved trails, curb cuts, and accessible onsite restrooms available at the market for customers.

Offices for the Richfield Farmers Market are located at the Richfield Community Center at 7000 Nicollet Ave S. The Farmers Market is held at Veterans Memorial Park at 64th Street and Portland Ave S.
