Farmers’ Markets:: A Season to Celebrate

Sitka Salmon Shares

It’s August in Minnesota and if you need more in your summer diet than cheese on a stick from the State Fair, look no further than the plethora of fresh green crispy vegetables and fruits available at farmers’ markets across the state. In the heart of the season you can’t swing a fishing pole without hitting a market somewhere near you. That’s why Sitka Salmon Shares, the nation’s most respected Community Supported Fishery (CSF), has brought down their line-caught Alaskan seafood to be a part of Minnesota’s Farmers’ Market this 2019 season in the Twin Cities area.

Sitka Salmon Shares is a collective of small-boat fishing families that traditionally and sustainably harvest 21 species of Alaskan seafood with premium artisan style. Then, that catch is delivered directly to their members’ doors every month. What’s more exciting is that you don’t have to be a member to share in the bounty of the harvest. Just come find one of their booths to purchase sashimi-grade seafood directly from their farmers’ market stewards.

Richie Mann, a salmon steward and the Minnesota community manager for Sitka Salmon Shares, states, “At most markets, we typically have Coho and Keta Salmon, Pacific Cod, Halibut Morsels, Black Bass, Albacore Tuna, Spot Prawns, Salmon Burger and Smoked Salmon. You can also sign up for your very own seafood share right at market with our special Famers’ Market discount code and promotion.”
