Food Trucks Welcome

We invite food trucks to join us at the Farmers Market! In the new location, food trucks will be placed in the A to Zinnia Parking lot, right along Broadway. Food trucks must be open for business during the hours of the market, but are welcome to operate outside of the posted market hours (aka: come early and/or stay late) to be able to serve over the lunch or dinner hours. Please complete the vendor registration forms above and, in addition, let the Chamber know which days and hours you plan to operate so we can plan accordingly.

Family Friendly

We would love to grow the market by adding family-friendly activities and live music, especially at the Saturday markets. Please reach out to chamber@newulm.com or 507-233-4300 if you would like to get involved! We will publish the list of activities planned each week here on this website (www.newulm.com/farmersmarket).

The New Ulm Farmers Market is affiliated with the Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP). Certain vendors will also be able to accept WIC and Snap/EBT soon. We are hoping this will be available by mid-July and will keep this page updated as we learn more.

Sponsors

We are accepting sponsors for the 2024 Farmers Market season now through June 14.

Butter Cream Soaps LLC
www.buttercreamsoaps.com

Butter Cream Soaps LLC was started in 2022 and will be attending the New Ulm Farmers Market for the first time this summer. We are located south of Sleepy Eye and make handmade soap and shampoo using farm fresh milk from our Holstein cows. The beneficial properties of the milk mixed with high quality oils creates bars of soap and shampoo that keep skin from drying out. The bars are scented with essential oils and fragrances to suite your preferences. Unscented is also available for those that may have skin irritations from fragrances. Stop by our booth this summer and make the switch from commercial bottles of soap and shampoo to a local product that your skin and hair will thank you for! 


egoclectionByKristen

My name is Kristen Gordon of egoclectionByKristen.  I have recently relocated from Minneapolis to Fairfax.  This will be my first year vending in this region of Minnesota after two years participating in a couple of markets in the Twin Cities.  My focus is on the unusual…savory jams, mustards, chutneys, marmalades, relishes, and other condiments.  My approach is to use as much locally grown produce as possible.  This ensures supporting other local producers and keeping a local focus.  In addition, I sell a limited variety of scones, crumpets, and some really great caramels.  My baked goods are produced with high-quality, small-milled flours right from Minnesota.  My business is cash or personal check only, except for allowable EBT purchases.  I do not have a website and no social media presence.  I look forward to meeting everybody face to face and establishing some new contacts.

You’ll find us at the market each Thursday and Saturday from opening day in June until our help goes back to school in late August. Bulk orders can be placed in advance at www.guldanfamilyfarm.com for making salsa, pickles, sweet corn, or pretty much anything else that comes to mind.

Looking for All Natural, Farm Fresh, Free Range, Local… That’s what Holly Jolly Acres is all about! Hi! I’m Holly of  Holly Jolly Acres, located right outside of town on a farm near Gibbon, MN. Holly Jolly Acres originated on a small farm near Walters, MN, with LuLu the white leghorn and a few of her flock friends. Last summer Holly Jolly Acres was able to move home and is excited to be part of the local farmer’s market! Free range chickens of all sorts of breeds and runner ducks are what you’ll find enjoying the farm! We will start the market season off with local, farm fresh eggs and as the season goes on the garden at Holly Jolly Acres will have plenty of fresh produce and cut flowers to bring to the market!

Hi!  We are the Johnsons from Piggery Run Farm, Gibbon, Minnesota, brand new to the New Ulm Farmers Market this summer, although our farm has had pigs since 2019. We farrow to finish our 100% Berkshire hogs with plenty of mud, sunshine, and corn/soy/GMO free grains to give them the best and most comfortable life possible while they are with us.  Pure Berkshires are known for their outstanding flavor, juiciness, and tenderness, so we welcome you to give this pork a try for your next dinner.  We’ll have frozen roasts, ground, chops, side pork, bacon, steaks, tenderloin, ribs, and 6+ flavors of snack sticks available for purchase at the market or you can pre-order on our website and pick up your meat there.  We are branching out into offering 100% whole wheat bread this summer as well, made fresh in our farm kitchen.  Our children will also be a part of the farmers market with us this summer as they produce and sell their own homemade products…jewelry, dried dog treats, and more things to come!

Woof’em Down Bakery
https://woofemdownbakery.com
507-995-6936 | woofemdownbakery23@gmail.com

Woof’em Down Bakery was created in the late winter, early spring of 2023. Our business is a combination of my love of baking and a love for dogs. We had a Yorkie-Poo, and later in his life, he developed renal issues. The food from the vet was so unappealing, as were any treats out on the market. We began researching ways to create healthy food and treats for him at home. With the natural ingredients used in our treats, including spent grains from Schell’s Brewery and honey from Gardner Bees, we created treats for all dogs with better flavor and healthier quality. 


Zeitgeist Gifting

Hi, I’m Allie. The concept for Zeitgeist Gifting was born out of the idea that while the last few years have been difficult, it has been a beautiful catalyst for change and creation for many, myself included. I’ve discovered along the way so many wonderful makers in our community and wanted to bring together a collection of thoughtful, handmade products from earnest companies to showcase the best spirit of the times. These items have come together in themed gift boxes great for a wide variety of interests. Along the way, I also discovered a love for creating jewelry and accessories from polymer clay and a bit of an obsession with baking scones as well! I hope you (or whoever you are gifting them to) enjoy the end product. Thank you for being open to the unexpected.
