Minnesota Grown Directory Now Available


A picture of the new guide taken from

The  Minnesota Grown directory is now available and is celebrating 30 years of connecting Minnesotans with local producers! This guidebook has been a lifesaver for us since we started eating locally and still lives in a handy drawer in our kitchen. It lists hundreds of products and services available direct from the farm, including the standard produce, meat, and dairy and the not-so-standard items like wild rice, wine, and emu. It also includes farmers markets, CSA’s, and my favorite, an index of listings by product.  Our 2010 copy has circles, notes, and prices scribbled in from trying to find the first available pick-your-own strawberries.  All of the apple orchards that were still open in January are highlighted from when I wanted one more batch of applesauce.


The guidebooks are free and available at many libraries, farmers markets, and co-ops around the state.  If you can’t find one at a community location, you can order one at or go even greener and search their online directory.  This year’s directory has 900+ listings from around this state and promises to again be a must-have for all Minnesota locavores!
