Mill City Farmers Market is excited to be part of the WordPlay Book Festival this Saturday with TWO cooking demos from Beth Dooley and Mette Nielsen, authors of Sweet Nature.

Produce Planner

Arugula, asparagus, beans (dried), beets, bok choy (baby), carrots, chili peppers (dried), fiddlehead ferns, green onions, herbs (fresh), lettuce, microgreens, mushrooms (fresh, dried, MORELS!), nettles, pea shoots, radishes, ramps, rhubarb, salad mix, spinach, sunchokes, Swiss chard, turnips (hakurei, salad) vegetable & herb starter plants

Our produce planner is our best estimate, but due to the variable nature of farming not guarenteed!

Mill City Cooks
