Mississippi River Network: Mississippi River Day

Mill City Farmers Market

Minneapolis, MN 55401

A component of the Mississippi River Days of Action between June 8 and June 18, 2023, Mississippi River Day will be held on June 17, 2023 from 8am-1pm in Minneapolis, MN at Mill City Farmers Market. This event will be collaboratively hosted by Green Lands Blue Waters (GLBW), the Sustainable Farming Association (SFA), and Mill City Farmers Market. Attendees will learn how agriculture directly impacts river health, and how farmers using Continuous Living Cover (CLC) practices help protect the Mississippi River.  CLC farming keeps living roots in the soil year-round to reduce soil erosion and agricultural runoff that degrade water quality.

This event brings together farmers, food makers, and the local community at the Market, which overlooks the Mississippi River. Alongside over 50 farmers market vendors, Mississippi River Day organizers will feature Kernza® perennial grain, with cracker samples from Perennial Pantry.  The market will host a free cooking demonstration and local author Beth Dooley will be selling signed copies of her cookbooks.
