This summer, we're connecting you with the growers, farmers, crafters, and makers at the farmers markets around the northern Minnesota region. On Thursday, June 2nd, the Walker Farmers Market has its opening day festivities. The market is hosted by the Green Scene Market and Eatery, and Heidi Holtan was joined by the owner of the Green Scene, Erin Haefele, to chat more about the importance of local food systems in northern Minnesota. DaNae Johnson, owner/farmer of Vibrant Farm in Laporte also joined in the conversation. Click the player above to learn more about What's Fresh at the Walker Farmer's Market.
Each week on the KAXE/KBXE Morning Show, we’re connecting you to the bounty of the northland by bringing you stories of local farmers, spotlighting the region’s farmer’s markets, and sharing how you can get involved with local food in your area. The growing season here in Minnesota is short and fickle, so we’re answering that all-important question this time of year…. What’s Fresh?
