Come celebrate local foods with us!
Mark your calendars for the 18th annual Minnesota Cooks™ Day at the Minnesota State Fair, scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 30 in Dan Patch Park. This is the premier event of Minnesota Farmers Union’s local foods education and outreach program and not-to-be-missed local foods celebration. Minnesota Cooks demonstrates the economic value-added agriculture that benefits some farmers who produce locally grown food. It also celebrates the restaurateurs and chefs who stand alongside farmers and support them with their purchasing power.
Join our hosts for the day, Mary Lahammer of TPT Twin Cities Public Television and Stephanie March and Stephanie Hansen of The Weekly Dish as we sample farm-fresh foods from farmers and chefs throughout the state of Minnesota and interact with celebrity tasters on stage as they discuss the importance of food and agriculture to all Minnesotans.
Keeping us entertained between shows will be Vicky Emerson and Sarah Morris of The Home Fires, an award-winning Americana duo.
We would like to thank our program sponsors: Farmers Union Insurance Agency, Farmers Union Industries and Minnesota Grown.
