Year Round Local Foods Market in downtown Willmar

The Willmar Design Center was formed in 2005 following 2 weekend visits from the Minnesota Design Team. The design team’s purpose is to restore downtown Willmar. The Willmar Design Center (WDC) has successfully operated a local foods summer market for several years. Local vendors developed a business plan for an all year local foods market. Julia Jackson, a Public Policy Graduate student at the Humphrey School, looked at other examples of all year local foods markets, interviewed key informants and made recommendations. The results are being used to assess the possibility of an all year local foods market.
