Looking for fresh, healthy, locally grown foods? The Deer River Food Access Coalition is seeking to improve access through a Farmers Market Event in Deer River. The Coalition is a partnership of local organizations including the Deer River Area Health Care Foundation, Essentia Health-Deer River, Get Fit Itasca, Minnesota Farmers’ Market Association, Second Harvest North Central Food Bank, and University of Minnesota Extension.
The Farmers Market will be offered as a one-day event on Friday, August 11th 12-5 p.m. at Northview Bank with the goal of launching a weekly farmers market in Deer River in summer 2018. Fresh local produce, eggs, meat, baked goods, barbecue and more will be available for purchase. University of Minnesota Extension will also be on-site offering food demos. Incentives for EBT customers will also be offered that day.The content you are trying to access is only available to members. Sorry.
