We are working hard to keep up with the number of vendors in our expanding market! This year we applied to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture’s Good Food Access Program for funds to install awnings and bricks around our Pavilion to expand the space for the Market. We’re crossing our fingers that we get this grant! This is the second year we’ve applied, so hopefully this is our year!
We are also permitted to accept EBT/SNAP benefits this year! We are still figuring out how this will work, but we are excited to have the opportunity to help folks of all different economic situations patronize our Market and have access to healthy food.
The Finland Farmers Market was started in 2014 as part of an effort to focus on local food in the Finland MN Area as an economic development strategy. The idea is to make space for local producers to sell their goods in their own community. The Clair Nelson Center also has a commercial kitchen space that is MDA certified and available for those taking that next step and creating a food product for retail sale.
