Winter farmers market Saturday (December 10).... #RochMN
In town for a medical checkup? Got loved ones in town for the holidays?
Here's something for you to do that can be fun, entertaining and something to get everyone out of the house for a while.
Check out the winter Rochester Downtown Farmers Market at the Olmsted County Fairgrounds. Head south on Broadway (which is also called highway 63) with downtown behind you and the giant ear of corn water tower in front of you.
Turn left on 16th Street S.E., four blocks south of the giant ear of corn. There, you'll find the farmers market at the fairgrounds on your left.
Time: 9 a.m. to 12 noon
Date: Saturday December 10 (and December 17)
Location: Corner of 16th Street S.E. and Broadway
You never know what you'll find at the farmers market, winter included. My favorite is bags of dehydrated vegetables that you can take home and make into soup. Yum!
"This week and every Winter Market date, cooking demos at the Prairie Hollow Farm stall," says the market website.
The market notes it is comprised of local growers who grow their food within 50 miles of Rochester.
