Lanesboro Farmers Market
Held seasonally at Sylvan Park, the Lanesboro Farmers Market has dozens of vendors representing the region's 1,500 farms. Look for regional specialties such as grass-fed beef and pork; rhubarb soap; homemade cereal, pies, jams, and jellies; lefse; krumkake; rosettes; and our favorite treat -- cashew crunch made with just butter, sugar and cashews. The market runs Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings from May through October (800/944-2670; lanesboro.com).
