I’m always on the hunt for hidden food gems throughout the Twin Cities.

Whether it’s a farmer’s market in the dead of winter or a roadside farm stand, I like to share my good finds. One such find is the University of Minnesota’s dairy salesroom.

I discovered this place a few years ago and spoiled myself with ice cream and cheese. I didn’t return until recently when I realized I’m working a mere six minutes from the salesroom and had to visit again.


Here are the details:

  • The salesroom is open only on Wednesdays from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. and now includes the meat lab salesroom.
  • Expect to find several varieties of ice cream (pints are $3.50), frozen yogurt, cheese and frozen meats that are made during classes and research projects.
  • Also find honey, maple syrup, crackers, and yogurt (depending on availability).
  • Show up early – they will sell out of popular, small batch products quickly.
  • Bring cash or credit card.
  • Don’t forget a cooler so the ice cream doesn’t melt!

More information can be found on the Dairy Salesroom or Meat Lab Salesroom websites.
