ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – It’s opening a week later than usual, but rain, snow or shine, the show will go on for the St. Paul Farmer’s Market in Lowertown.

When the gates open at 6 a.m. Saturday morning, manager Jack Gerten says they’ll have plenty of plants, herbs, meats and cheeses, and hanging baskets.

Gerten said some of the vegetables typically seen at this time of year are getting a late start.

“Last year they were out in the field probably about a month ago,” he said. “And now, between the rain and the snow, everything’s still geared up ready to go but they haven’t been able to get in the field yet.”

The extra week has allowed them time to give the market a good cleaning, Gerten said.
