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.
