Love Local: East Isles Farmers Market – Uptown Minneapolis

Aug 28, 2020 | people/passions

The East Isles Residents Association is in partnership with The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board to create the first-ever Farmers Market in a park on Park Board property. The Farmers Market is the brainchild of the East Isles Residents Association and was established as a means to further our mission of building community, promoting green spaces, and fostering neighbor relations.

East Isles is a destination in the summer months and the location for the market is a trifecta for residents, visitors and potential vendors.

With the Walker Library and transit stop to the east, Uptown/Lagoon Avenue to the south, The Greenway running parallel, and East Calhoun Parkway/Lake of the Isles just down the block to the west, the East Isles Farmers Market is a prime location for easy access to locally sourced food and fun.

Our Mission

The East Isles Farmers Market inspires a healthy community by bringing local, sustainable, and mostly organic or pesticide-free produce to our high-density neighborhood. It’s accessible by bike, foot, or skateboard.

We Love Local

  • We contribute to the success of local food growers, bakers, and makers by supporting local entrepreneurs and artisans.

  • We strive to include women and minority-owned businesses to further an equitable marketplace. More than half of our vendors are women-owned businesses.

  • We vet the quality of sourcing, production and growing practices of our vendors.

  • We provide educational opportunities related to food, rain gardens, sustainability and zero waste.

  • We promote the Minnesota Cottage Food Law by encouraging residents and neighbors to participate in our Pickle Booth.

We’re on the homestretch! Don’t miss our upcoming markets:
