Camden Farmer’s Market and Twin Cities Veg Fest invite YOU to participate in an exciting new collaboration throughout the 2020 Camden Farmers Market Season: Veg Up the Market!

This collaboration will bring followers of both events to purchase fresh produce, locally grown food, and local products on Saturdays from noon to 4pm on Saturdays at 4414 Humboldt Avenue North, Minneapolis, 55412. Our mission is to increase access to fresh produce and locally produced food on the Northside.

Vendors will be assigned different days throughout the season which will run from July 18 to September 12. Register your business or organization at!

Camden Farmers Market and Twin Cities Veg Fest take vendor and attendee health seriously. All attendees will be required to wear masks and wash their hands before entering. Only 150 people will be allowed into the market at any one time, and traffic will flow one way through the vendors.

Throughout the season Twin Cities Veg Fest and Compassionate Action for Animals representatives will be encouraging attendees to make #snaptheveg videos and participate in the Explore Veg Challenge, a 21-day challenge to try plant-based eating.

We look forward to your participation in the market!


Why this collaboration? Food is power. Right now there are only two places to get fresh produce on the Northside. The Camden Market will bring a third. Both The Camden Market and Twin Cities Veg Fest work to empower people to make healthy food choices.

Is this market entirely plant-based? No, vendors selling animal products can participate.

What days will the knife-off plant-based cooking contests take place? Aug 22, Sept 5 and September 26

What’s #snaptheveg? Snap the veg is a video project to encourage people to eat more veggies and try out plant-based eating. To participate, take a video of yourself snapping a veggie, biting into it, and saying “Snap the Veg Challenge” Post it publicly on social media with the hashtag #snaptheveg and tag 3 friends you want to have take the challenge. Each week we’ll choose one person who has posted a video to get $25 to spend at the market!

What’s the Explore Veg Challenge? We challenge you to try veg eating for 21 days! You get recipes, a shopping list, social support on a Facebook group, and daily mini-challenge emails full of inspiration. Plus, all who sign up get a discount card for 15% off at local restaurants!!
