The Saint Paul Farmer's Market has gotten much better since they did their renovation. There is a sectioned roof overhead, making it easier to attend in rain - I went about two weeks ago in the pouring rain and was comfortable.
Saint Paul's market is completely different from Minneapolis, which is a nice change of pace. The downtown Minneapolis market runs alongs several blocks of Nicollet Avenue, whereas Saint Paul is confined to a large square block. Parking is plentiful, and there is a trolley from several free lots.
There are multitudes of different products here, all of them fresh. You can find fresh produce, flats of plants, fresh meat, eggs, and bakery. I would highly recommend Golden Fig's products - if you need a spice to liven up dinner, she's got it! I bought a grilling rub from her a couple of months ago and can't get enough of it. The Golden Fig table and many others have many recipe ideas for their products.
Every weekend, the market features a different band and a different gardening expert. It's worth a trip every couple of weeks!

Be prepared to fight crowds on the weekends, it’s packed on Saturdays in the summer. Sundays are more manageable.
