Sunrise Flour Mill at Mill City Farmers Market

You'll find organic flours, oatmeal and whole grains from Sunrise Flour Mill of North Branch at the MCFM.  I've been a fan of their fresh flaked oats since trying it for the first time last year, but until our most recent trip to the Market I hadn't taken time to get to know the people behind the product. 

We hit the July 9 market at 8am sharp, allowing Marty Glanville a few minutes to spend with us before the crowds rolled in.

In addition to selling grain products, Marty and her husband, Darrold, are distributors for a number of personal flour mills and flakers, and they also offer Bread Baking classes.  And if that weren't enough, they're your source for the perfect wood-fired oven - so now you can bake pizza and bread on the patio!

Ellie's Whole Grains (GotFlax.com) at Mill City Farmers Market

Ellie of Ellie's Whole Grains(gotflax.com) explained the virtues of flax at a recent Mill City Farmers Market.  I can't speak to all the benefits Ellie rattled off, but flax has certainly kept my skin silky soft since I made it a part of my diet last year.

How to Keep Cool at the Mill City Farmers Market

Psychedelic Beet Salad

When I picked up a bunch of colorful beets from Uptown Farmers at the Mill City Farmers Market, I had no idea just how wild they were until I started shredding them.  Trippy!

Food Demos and Samples at Mill City Farmers Market

A neat feature of the Mill City Farmers Market is their 10:00am food demo.  You experience first hand how products sold at the Market are combined to create healthy dishes.  An added bonus is the post-demo sampling.

During the July 2 Market, Spoonriver Chef Chris Bundy prepared a salad and provided helpful tips and information.
