FEAST! marketplace returns online, in-person
The Civic Center hosts regional vendors Saturday, Dec. 11.
Regional food vendors return in person to Rochester, but cautious consumers can still order online.
Rochester’s FEAST! Local Foods marketplace takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, at Mayo Civic Center.
As in 2020, the FEAST! Online marketplace is live now through Dec. 9. Orders made online will be available for curbside pickup at the Civic Center the following Saturday.
The marketplace lists items ranging from Caribbean condiments to chocolates and steaks. Most of the vendors use local ingredients to create jams, cheeses, and other specialty food and drink
“This is much more than a farmers market — it’s like a farmers market on steroids,” said event co-host Tim Penny, the President and CEO of Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation.
