MINNEAPOLIS - The city of Minneapolis has an online interactive map that makes it easy to find farmers markets all over the city.

The website, www.minneapolismn.gov/farmersmarkets, shows the address, season dates and opening times for each market.

The map lists 15 farmers markets currently, but more will be added as information becomes available.

Eight of the markets accept "electronic benefits transfer" cards as payment to give residents on federal food assistance easier access to fresh, healthy food. Some of the farmers markets are mini markets, special small markets that the city licenses to get more fresh and affordable produce on the table in low-income neighborhoods.

Check out Homegrown Minneapolis for more ways to get healthy, local food on the table. Homegrown Minneapolis is a citywide initiative expanding our community's ability to grow, process, distribute, eat and compost more healthy, sustainable, locally grown foods.
