Throughout the month of September, Urban Roots participates as a vendor at the Mill City Farmers market in Minneapolis. We are proud to be one of the many vendors who use sustainable practices in producing and manufacturing goods.
This past Saturday, September 21st, was Urban Roots’ third time selling produce at the market this year. We displayed a variety of late summer/early fall crop such as: zucchini, arugula, tomatoes, amaranth greens, ground cherries, tomatillos, eggplant, jalapenos, pak choi, tatsoi, shallots, fingerling potatoes and more. One crop that brought attention to our stand was the watermelon radish–a mild radish of Chinese origin that bears a deep magenta center. Our bouquets of the queen rose lime zinnias were also a hit.
Overall, it was a successful day at the market. We all had fun trying to stay warm and as we snacked on momos from the Gorkha Palace stand. Saturday, the 28th is our last day at the Mill City Farmers market, so come visit us between 8AM and 1PM!
