Bring the Farm Indoors

This winter, the Minnetonka Farmers Market moves indoors to the Minnetonka Community Center, with a surprising bounty—even in the presumed off season—of vendors and products. City of Minnetonka communications coordinator Justin Pelegano says he expects a couple dozen vendors selling food, cards, gifts and more. In addition, attendees can catch live music from ART Dept and check out a local library booth with activities for kids and adults. Make a morning of it with coffee and pastries, and wander the market in the comfort of central heating.
