Menu of the Week


Honey Chicken Kabobs

1/4 cup vegetable oil 
1/3 cup honey (from Bee Sweet Honey)
1/3 cup soy sauce 
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 
8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes (from Grillin Meats)
2 cloves garlic 
5 small onions, cut into 2 inch pieces 
2 peppers, cut into 2 inch pieces (from Schwartz Farm)
skewers 

Directions
  • In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, and pepper. Before adding chicken, reserve a small amount of marinade to brush onto kabobs while cooking. Place the chicken, garlic, onions and peppers in the bowl, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours (the longer the better).
  • Preheat the grill for high heat.
  • Drain marinade from the chicken and vegetables, and discard marinade. Thread chicken and vegetables alternately onto the skewers.
  • Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the skewers on the grill. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken juices run clear. Turn and brush with reserved marinade frequently.

Freshly ground black pepper

Pets at the Market

We love pets, however, the Blaine Farmers Market is considered an outdoor grocery store.  Since we sell food and provide food samples, we must follow the health and safety guidelines set forth by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. Pets are not allowed within the market area. Service and police dogs are always welcome.  

Little Red Wagon

Little Red Wagon

The Little Red Wagon is a book sharing option for adults and kids.  Look for the Little Red Wagon near the Market Manager's booth and browse a small collection of books. Feel free to donate a book or two and keep our selection well stocked.  Little ones can sit in the shade and read a book while parents shop.
