Customers can expect to choose all kinds of food and home products from 15 to 20 vendors who put up booths and tables.
“All of our vendors are from within 50 miles of Eagan who make products, and we try to focus our customers to our local makers,” Mozingo said. The city promotes the market dates on city social media platforms.
“It changes frequently in the winter,” she added.
The market also features frozen pork, homemade jams, fresh roasted coffee beans and honey products.
“Our micro greens are sold in the infant stages that is herbs that are packed with a punch of vitamins and nutrients that have health benefits,” Mozingo said.
The Eagan Indoor Market stayed open in 2020 and 2021 during the pandemic since it was considered an essential business since it sold food products.
Before the holiday, the Indoor Market saw between 250 to 300 customers on evenings when the merchants were selling all kinds of holiday gifts and sweet and savory treats, according to Mozingo.
