ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – After a week delay, the St. Paul Farmer’s market is up and running for the spring and summer months.

Snow forced management to postpone the original opening date of April 27. All the shoppers were bundled up in their winter gear to pick up fresh breads, meats and cheeses.

One thing visitors won’t see this week at the farmer’s market is fresh produce. According to St. Paul Farmer’s Market Director Jack Gerten, the cold weather is delaying the availability of veggies and fruits.

“it’s going to be a couple, three-week delay this year. But I do think because of the moisture you’re going to see better-quality vegetables than we’ve seen in the last…three years because we’ve been under drought stress conditions,” Gerten said.

The farmer’s market runs from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.
