The Northfield Farmer’s Market has been taking place for more than 40 years.

The market is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturdays from 9-11 a.m. at Riverside Park on 7th Street.

All produce is raised by residents within a 15-mile radius of Northfield. All meat products are grown by residents within a 25-mile radius of Northfield.

Mary Schaffer has been coming to the market since 1976 and was selling jam, mini hosta, free range eggs, cactus and other goods from her farm near Hampton.

Larry Pflaum sold kale, pea pods, flowers and other produce Saturday at the Farmer’s Market. Pflaum is also known for his string beans, which he grows on his farm near the Dakota County Fairgrounds.

Christian Vosejpka’s family is part of a CSA and sold rhubarb, onions and flowers Saturday at the market. His family grows rhubarb in Dundas and harvests it from around 100 hills, he said.
