St. Paul Farmers’ Market, Minnesota

The Spread: True locavores haunt the 167 stalls of St. Paul’s downtown Saturday market, and for good reason: every farmer and producer selling here comes from within a 75-mile radius of the city (a top 10 vote-getter for markets in our AFC survey). Top-selling springtime wares here include organic asparagus, and veggie- and flower-plant seedlings for gardeners; summer brings bell peppers, tomatillos, and muskmelons; and hormone-free poultry, small-batch honey, and artisanal cheeses are available all year.

Most Unusual Find: Unconventional pastries and baked goods—including tuna empanadas and crisp-crusted Philippine-style pan de sal rolls—from local bakery A Toast to Bread.
