The Lanesboro Farmers Market is having their market opener on May 4. This year is looking to be a great one for the market. The new market manager, Stena Lieb, has worked to get a few more market vendors. Happy Camper Cupcakes will be joining us for the season. They have been working on their recipes for cupcakes and muffins! Another newcomer is Crooked Pine Soap. She will be bringing handmade cold pressed goats milk soaps, body butters, and lotion bars along with rhubarb, breads and canned goods. The Commonweal Theater provided coffee for shoppers last year and will again be setting up their table and joining the market for the season.

The market also has several vendors working toward mushroom certifications. When the certifications are finished the vendors will be able to sell wild collected morel mushrooms! And the way the weather has been, there may be a bunch of mushrooms out there once it warms up.

Vendors may also add arts or crafts to their booths this year. If an individual is selling farmer’s market produce, they also have the option to sell handmade original arts and crafts.

Homegrown by Chris and Linda will be selling organic vegetables, meat, milled on site grains and fruit. These will be very exciting additions to the market this year.

Returning vendors are Anita Bue with jams, jellies, chutneys and baked goods; Oak Spring Herb Farm with herbs, annuals, wool, potpourri, bath salts and soaps; The Dry Store with dried foods, plants and rhubarb stuff; Eddyville with jellies, salsa, plants, produce; Doris Schleuesner with produce, cut flowers, popcorn and baked goods; Stena Lieb with produce, jams, jellies, pickled vegetables, peacock feathers and crafts; Kirsten Gjere with honey, honey soap, lip balms and lotion sticks; and Wind Turbine Orchard with apples and pears.

The Lanesboro City Council has also approved the addition of a permanent sign for the market. The market is working on arranging funds to have a sign made and created. The vendors are very excited to have more visibility for the market in the future.

The Lanesboro Farmers Market operates at Sylvan Park in Lanesboro. Market hours are 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., every Saturday starting May 4 and ending Oct. 26. There is room for more vendors for the season also. If you are interested in selling for a day or the season, call Stena Lieb at 507-467-2275. Entertainers are also welcome; call to set up a day or days you would like to come and join the Lanesboro Farmers Market.
