The 2019 Minnesota Grown Directory is now available according to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. The Minnesota Grown Directory highlights products and services that are available directly from Minnesota Farmers and farmers markets. This year's edition has 1,023 farmer members from all across Minnesota.

"The Minnesota Grown Directory is a great resource for Minnesotans and visitors to our state who are looking for fresh, local products," said Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Thom Peterson. "The Directory is one of the best places to find local farms and farmers markets, and gives our farmers another avenue to sell their products."

New features this year include: you can search by new product categories that include On-Farm Dinners/Tastings, Hemp, Microgreens, and pick your own farm opportunities. In addition there are photos from member farms and markets and illustrations by Minnesota artist Maria Rose Adams featured throughout the Directory.
