Minneapolis Farmers’ Market End of Season Plenty = Thank a Local Farmer

It was 26 degrees in the morning on Friday October 31, 2014.  Winter draws on AgainThese Photos were taken at the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market in October 2014.  My visit coincided with the first cold day we had in Minneapolis. The growers and sellers were bundled up.

Having had a cold that lasted forever; it was my first day out in weeks.  The displays were a riot of color in October. Camera in gloved hands, I snapped the beauty of the fall harvest.

The tiny Hmong grandma makes the most beautiful toys, bags and pillow covers by hand. It looks like applique, but it is trapunto. Painstakingly hand sewn with beautiful results.

Thanks to all the local farmers and artisans for what they share with our community.
