Farmer’s Market at Hometown Hardware

Spring is here and everyone is looking for something fresh. The Farmer’s Market in Baudette certainly features fresh produce, new ideas, crafts, furniture and the like. The Farmers Market at Lake of the Woods is located at the local Hardware Hank parking lot at 804 West Main St., Baudette, MN (Hwy 11 West).

The store owners have plenty of space both for parking and lawn where displays are set up. The owners are very generous to provide this area and the location is perfect as the site is very visible to all who travel that road.

The Farmers Market was started about 10 years ago by local citizens who had an abundance of produce. The side benefit of sharing their produce was putting a little revenue in their pockets. Since that time they have organized the Market with the help of organizations as Minnesota Grown and Fresh Start Markets. Consult these organizations for more locations to pick up fresh produce during your travel times.

Each vendor has unique wares to offer. You will find baked goods, cheese, arts and crafts, flowers, eggs, herbs, honey, jams, meats, plants,farmers market 2 coffee, fruits, homemade rugs, jewelry, Tupperware, and an awesome display of wooden benches, beds, picnic tables and many other smaller items.  There is no lack of talent in this area and the vendors are willing to go to the extra work of transporting their wares to the selling location to share those talents with the public.

Farmer’s Markets have become popular throughout the United States as people are more and more concerned about buying fresh foods for their families. Growers throughout the countryside either grow these fine foods for their families and their winter supply of food, or they grow foods because they love to watch things grow and produce.  As a person who doesn’t garden, it’s always refreshing to see local produce being available to buy.

Attend a Farmer’s Market in your area to support the community and local vendors and small businesses. Each has their own unique taste and style. There is a National Farmer’s Market Directory available at https://nnfmd.org for your convenience and interest.
