Wondering where a vendor’s farm is located? Want to know the best way to prepare a certain type of produce? Need canning advice? Then ask our vendors! 

One of the greatest attractions to coming to a market vs. a grocery store is the ability to build connections through talking directly to the farmer/food producer. So if you ever have questions about what you are buying, we encourage you to ask the vendors themselves as they are best experts at the market.  

The Richfield Farmers Markets' vendors grow what they sell. And they bring their products on a weekly basis to the market from within 200 miles of Richfield. Generally, the produce that you buy at our markets has been picked that morning or the day before. We currently allow one vendor at the Saturday market to sell wholesale produce grown outside of Minnesota in addition their own MN produce. We believe that this adds to the overall market service and accessibility.
