After a glorious early spring, the weather might not be fully cooperating this weekend (it looks like rain on Saturday, with a high temperature of 46 degrees, although Sunday will be partly cloudy and up to 61 degrees) but a cool and possibly wet conditions won't be keeping the Minneapolis and St. Paul farmers markets from making their 2012 debuts.
The Minneapolis market kicks off at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning, and will remain open through 2 p.m. The market is open daily, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekends. The market's Nicollet Mall outlet is now open Thursdays (6 a.m. to 6 p.m.).
The St. Paul market opens Saturday (6 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and Sunday (8 a.m. to 1 p.m.). The market's Roseville branch debuts on Tuesday (8 a.m. to noon), and its Andover branch also opens Tuesday (2:30 to 6:30 p.m.).
