The Eagan Market Fest is located at the Eagan Community Center and is accessible by multiple bus routes. Rated the #1 Farmers Market in MN and a top 20 market nationwide, the Eagan Market Fest is open year-round and attracts more than 34,000 attendees. As the market accepts SNAP/EBT food assistance cards, low-income households have an incentive to buy local produce and healthy foods. Theme nights highlight the community’s diversity while people gather for picnics on the large, open grassy lawn in the warm months. “The audience you see at Market Fest is a different audience than the one you see when you go into a City of Eagan Council meeting,” said Mayor Mike Maguire. Bridging cultural, ethnic, and economic differences, the market is a space for residents to connect and strengthen the unique character of Eagan.
