OVERVIEW

The Clover Valley Market launched in June 2021 as a summer farmers market. It is a co-operative, farmer-run, non-profit market serving Duluth Township and other Minnesota North Shore communities. The market is located at the Duluth Township Town Hall (6092 Homestead Road, Duluth, MN).

The market was founded and is currently led by Township residents Justin Osadjan (Market Manager), Blane Tetreault (Market Administrator), and Pam West (Market Advisor) in cooperation with the Town Board.

The summer farmers market and a future winter market strive to promote the products of local citizens and to advocate for food-related issues. Vendors offer a broad range of produce, cottage foods, arts, crafts, and more. The markets strive to be waste-free and to convert discarded organic materials into compost.

If you have questions about the market, feel free to email us at clovervalleymarket@gmail.com. If you are interested in becoming a vendor, please visit our Vendors webpage.

Thank you for supporting our local farmers and producers! Please let a friend know about our market. We all do better when we all do better!
