One of the best parts of summer months is all the fresh produce available at the farmer's markets, and lucky for us in Minnehaha County, there are several options for our needs. Both Brandon and Sioux Falls offer a wonderful array of local goods at their markets that run on Saturdays during May-October, with dozens of unique vendors regularly attending. The Sioux Falls market, known as the Falls Park Farmer's Market, has items available from 8:00AM-1:00PM at the Fall's Park pavilion. The Brandon Farmer's Market takes place at 515 N Splitrock Blvd from 9:00AM-2:00PM.
If you are a salad lover, there should be some good greens starting to be available. Or, if you are looking for something a little more sugary, both markets have some excellent baked goods you do not want to miss. Flower and artisan vendors also regularly attend, creating and opportunity to find a special gift. So, if you are not busy Saturday morning, consider stopping by one, or both, as you start your day. Oh, and do not forget that as the season goes on, other items become available, so if you do not find what you are looking for, it could always be available in a few weeks.
