Shoppers at the Kingfield Farmers Market (4310 Nicollet Av. S., Mpls., ­, 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Sun.) have to wait until 11 a.m. for their Sunday fried chicken fix, but their patience will pay off. Other highlights? A pimento grilled cheese sandwich with bacon, fried green tomatoes, picture-perfect mac and cheese and one of the Twin Cities’ great double-patty cheeseburgers.

Located across the street from the great St. Paul Farmers Market (290 E. 5th St., St. Paul,, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Sat.-Sun.), this sharp, great-looking spot starts its brunch service at 10 a.m. Chef Adam Eaton carries over his dreamy bologna sandwich, awesome burger and must-have shrimp and grits from dinner, then adds a fabulous “everything” bagel, caramel-glazed French toast, and more. A great bar, too.
