ST. PAUL, Minn. - The 2018 Minnesota Grown Directory, a 1,000-member directory of Minnesota agricultural products and services available directly from farmers and farmers markets, is now available.

The directory is searchable by region, farm name or product, including locally grown fruits and vegetables, meats, dairy items, wineries, nurseries, Christmas trees, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) operations and more.

“Minnesota’s farmers offer a diverse range of quality products and the Minnesota Grown Directory is one of the best places to find local growers,” said Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson. “Buying directly from farmers and farmers markets also helps ensure the economic vitality of communities across the state.”

The Minnesota Grown Directory highlights farms and farmers markets from all parts of Minnesota.

“The 2018 Minnesota Grown Directory has a new, user-friendly design,” said Minnesota Grown Member Services Coordinator Karen Lanthier. “The Directory is the first place customers go to look for local fresh produce, agritourism locations or farmers markets, and now that information is easier to find than ever. The online, mobile-friendly versions of the directory is another a great way to search for farms and farmers markets for customers on the move.”

The brand new directory features peak season information for a variety of fruits and vegetables, storage tips and preparation ideas, including recipes from local chefs. Minnesota Cooks – the educational outreach program of directory sponsor Minnesota Farmers Union – has once again contributed recipes from local chefs and restauranteurs to contribute recipes that celebrate Minnesota’s unique agricultural offerings.
