Carleton students were given an opportunity to go to the Lyndale Farmers Market near downtown Minneapolis, which is operated by the Central Minnesota Vegetable Growers Association. The market first opened in 1937 and has become one of the largest year-round farmers markets in the area.

At the Lyndale Farmers Market, students were able to find seasonal produce such as peppers, cauliflowers, potatoes, and various apples. In addition to a wide selection of vegetables, there were farmstead products like poultry, eggs, cheeses, and honey. The market also featured numerous vendors selling freshly made food and hot drinks.

This is the second time the market trip was organized for all Carleton students. It was sponsored using the Metro Access Fund, a program cooperatively funded by Student Activities and the Carleton Student Association, to cover transportation costs for students wishing to attend events in the Minneapolis–St. Paul area.
