Midtown Farmers Market: Market report with Dream of Wild Health


This week we got the chance to talk to Frank Haney from Dream of Wild Health, an organization on a mission to teach American Indian youth how to live healthy lives by learning traditional ways of growing and preparing their own food. The organization also maintains a collection of more than 300 seeds. Check out this week’s Market Report to hear more about the program (with the fab musical stylings of Blue Waters Brass in the background). [Audio below]

Market Report Notes:

  • Dream of Wild Health invites American Indian teens to its farm for four week sessions where they get the chance to learn about growing and preparing food, and how spirituality ties into the food culture.
  • The U of M has tested the indigenous foods grown at Dream of Wild Health and has found them to be exceptionally nutritious in comparison with more conventional vegetables.

Dream of Wild Health is a 10-acre farm in Hugo, MN. Its produce is available at the Tuesday Midtown Farmers Market.

The Midtown Farmer’s Market is open Tuesdays from 3-7 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m.–1 p.m. Check out its website for more of what’s fresh at the market.
