Shey, the coordinator for Minneapolis, said the city — which is home to 25 markets that typically run from May to October — is likely maxed out.

Still, Shey is quick to point out that farmers markets do more than offer locally grown greens.

“Sometimes people think these are just for the foodies, but at a lot of farmers markets it’s a whole range of people and cultures,” she said. “[They’re] a neat way to bring the community together.”
