Welcome to Local Harvest Market

Welcome to Local Harvest Market, Alexandria Minnesota. This is the online Alexandria Farmers Market for local and sustainably produced fruits, vegetables, eggs, meat, and dairy.

Local Harvest Market was built to create year-around access to fresh, wholesome, locally grown foods. Local farmers and small food manufacturers can list products and customers can buy online (how the market works). Orders are delivered to a convenient area drop site.

Local Harvest Market also acts as a regional food hub. Local Harvest Market helps create the scale needed for local producers to access wholesale channels. We currently serve restaurants, food co-ops, and neighborhood grocery stores. In the future we hope to deliver to schools and other institutions (meet our customers).

Local Harvest Market was launched in November 2014 when our retail online Farmers Market went live (shop the market). In June of 2015, our wholesale business was launched and is growing quickly.  The market operates on a bi-weekly cycle from January through March.  In April, the market will change to a weekly cycle for the remainder of 2016 (see also wholesale customer schedule).

Local Harvest Market encourages wholesale customers to work with us on demand and production planning.  Your commitments create visibility to demand which gives farmers the necessary lead-time to increase production. The capacity and breadth of the market basket will grow as new Producers join the market (be a producer).

At Local Harvest Market, you make informed choices about the food you eat and the farmers you support (meet our producers). Help us grow our rural economy by enjoying the wonderful variety of local foods, home grown and hand crafted in central Minnesota.
