In the summer, the outdoor market is located between the Guthrie Theatre and Mill City Museum and spans the block between South Second Street and West River Parkway. It’s an easy walk to the Stone Arch Bridge. During the summer your dog is welcome in some portions of the Market, but the Mill City operators request that dog owners be aware of their dogs at all times, especially around children.

The Power Of Produce (“PoP”) Club is a free program that was created to empower kids to make healthy food choices and introduce them to where their food comes from. Kids between the ages of 3-12 can join the club anytime. After that, they can sample a seasonal produce at the information booth, whenever you visit, summer or winter. They will also receive a PoP punch card and weekly $2 market token to spend on produce.
