By Erica Lanning, market manager for Neighborhood Roots

Neighborhood Roots is returning to Bachman’s on Lyndale for two more cozy winter markets in the greenhouse. Vendors from Fulton, Kingfield, and Nokomis Farmers’ Markets will be offering winter produce, meats, cheese, and eggs, along with breakfast and lunch, packaged foods, canned goods, and handmade crafts.

We’ll have some amazing gift options for your valentine when you visit our market on February 4. The full vendor roster is available here. In addition to great shopping, we’re excited to offer beer, music, and fun kids’ activities.

Check out Groveland Confections for gourmet chocolate treats and Fruit and Grain and Eat Me Bakery for special Valentine’s Day baked goods.

Fruit and Grain baked goods

For They Skincare and Wellness will have natural skincare products and candles. Also browse offerings from our talented artisans.

Look for professional photography from Autumn Carolynn, knitwear from Nokomis Knitting Co., and handmade fabric creations from GoGo Glam, DBL Creations, and i.e. design.

And of course, Bachman’s has a great variety of green and blooming plants - a perfect winter pick-me-up.

Keep your grocery dollars local and buy from our farmers and makers. Produce is limited in January, but look for storage crops like squash, onions, potatoes, and garlic from Dancing the Land Farm and Peter’s Pumpkins and Carmen’s Corn. Pick up microgreens and mushrooms from Yum Microgreens and R&R Cultivation.

For your fruit fix, stop by Havlicek’s Orchard and Mary Dirty Face Farm. Stock your freezer with pasture-raised pork and grass-fed beef from Johnson Family Pastures and Dancing the Land Farm and wild-caught Alaskan salmon from Wild Run Salmon.

Grab a loaf of homemade bread from Cakejam Kitchen, along with some local honey and jam from Walsh Ridge and Minnesota Food Forest. Restock the pantry with granola, lacto-fermented veggies, pickles, maple syrup, roasted nuts, and coffee beans.

While you shop, enjoy a cup of Cafe Palmira coffee available at the Info booth or a beer from Town Hall Brewery. All proceeds from beverage sales go towards Neighborhood Roots markets.

Little ones can enjoy activities provided by Lake Harriet United Methodist Preschool.

Join us for the next market on February 4 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Bachman’s, located at 6010 Lyndale Ave. S. Mark your calendars for the final winter market of the season on March 14.
