DULUTH, MN– Due to multiple reasons, the Greater Downtown Council has canceled the Downtown Farmers Market for the season.
The weekly event was scheduled for every Tuesday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the corner of Lake Avenue and Superior Street.
However, market leaders said the decision to cancel was made based on the limited vendor commitment, a workforce shortage, lower downtown employee traffic, and continued repercussions of the pandemic.
“I spoke with many farmers who wished they could participate in this event, but had a short supply of product, staff, and time to go around,” said Shanda Hanson, GDC Marketing and Events Coordinator. “I encourage Duluthians to visit the alternative market options and continue to support our local farmers and makers.”
Officials are hopeful for a successful return next year.
