At Frank & Ernest Marketplace, our online platform for sales, customers can peruse and purchase produce, meats, pantry items, and baked goods Thursday thru Tuesday. Come Thursday, you'll arrive the to Finnegan's Outdoor Courtyard to collect your purchases. ABOUT OUR ONLINE MARKETPLACE
To best support neighbors in purchasing direct via this hybrid pick-up market and local food makers and farmers in continuing to build relationships with customers; Frank & Ernest Markets and RED Market, along with the Linden Hills Farmer's Market built this online store. Akin to Etsy, this one-stop-farmer’s market-online shop, is where vendors post their own products and then personally fulfill customer orders via doorstep delivery, shipping or with farmer’s market pick-up.
Further, the platform is terrific for makers and farmers new to online sales, while being created for customers to select contact free shopping. It also reduces the need for customers to click from vendor site to site. At a single online store, with one credit card; you can purchase from dozens of makers, selecting from hundreds of food products, produce, proteins, pastries and plants, and pick up at locations across the Twin Cities.
