Come Join us in Northeast Minneapolis as we celebrate Opening Day of our Farmers Market with the Foodie Four Mile, a fun-run/walk. The route will encompass the Historic St. Anthony Falls Historic Milling District and offer stunning downtown views. Starting in B.F. Nelson Park in Northeast the course follows the Mississippi River crossing the Stone Arch Bridge, through the west-side wooded parks, then returns Northeast on the Plymouth Bridge. Oh, and watch out for that hill headed to the finish line!!
The Foodie Four Mile is a fundraiser for the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market and Twin Cities Food Justice. Twin Cities Food Justice is local group that has partnered with the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market to donate and deliver excess produce from the market to local foodshelves. This provides fresh, quality food needed in foodshelves.
