Locally Grown Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Available at Carters’ Market
Park Rapids is located in the heart of Minnesota, an area famous for our delicious and nutritious vegetables. Enjoy the finest in locally grown, seasonable vegetables, from Asparagus through Zucchini.
Fresh produce usually begins in mid-May, when the first asparagus pushes tender, sweet shoots up to herald the springtime. Often, we’ll continue to harvest asparagus through most of June, overlapping with our beautiful rhubarb, early peas, greens, and spinach.
By late June or early July, we open our pick your own strawberry patch for the sweetest, big, red, juicy strawberries you have ever seen — ready-picked strawberries are also available at our Market.
Summer brings on all of your favorites:
- Green Beans
- Sweet Peppers
- Hot Peppers
- Summer Squash & Zucchini
- Sweet Corn
- Red & Yellow Watermelon
- Swiss Chard
- Winter squash
- and more!
When fall arrives, Carter’s Red Wagon Farm is your headquarters for a wide variety of traditional and specialty pumpkins in all shapes, sizes, and colors (and don’t forget to check out the giant pumpkins at the farm!), winter squash, gourds, Indian corn, corn shocks, hay, straw, and a whole lot of family fun.
