In its second year, the Farm to Fairview at St. Kate's Farmers Market will open on St. Kate's Minneapolis campus on Wednesday, June 20.

The farmers market, which is committed to local and sustainable growing practices, is made possible through a partnership between St. Kate's and the University of Minnesota Medical Center/Fairview. It will offer Minnesota-grown produce, including vegetables, flowers, herbs, as well as the option to place orders for packaged organic chickens.

The farmers market will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., every Wednesday through mid-October depending on the weather. It will be held in the courtyard at the Minneapolis campus of St. Kate's, near 25th Avenue South and Sixth Street South (one and a half blocks north of Riverside Avenue.)
