Brainerd Farmers Market - Growers' Market - Fresh Produce

One of the perks of visiting or living in the Brainerd Lakes Area is the food…especially the locally grown produce and meats. The best place to pick up fresh groceries is at the Brainerd/Baxter Lakes Area Growers’ Market.

Here you will find everything you need for your cooking and grilling plans. You can get high quality fresh food right off the farm. There are vegetables, flowers, herbs, spices, meats and fruits that you can choose from. The selection depends on the season and weather, so if you stop by more than once, you’ll find new fruits and vegetables that may not have been there the week before.

All the products are grown within a 50 mile radius and there is a vast variety of vegetables, meat and herbs to choose from.
