Living on a farm, my kids are part of Minnesota’s agricultural heritage. But for all of those who aren’t, the Minnesota History Center is offering a unique event this Sunday that helps connect kids (and their parents) with the food that is part of our local history, geography, and economy.
Little Locavores will present healthy treats prepared by local chefs. Try some wild rice salad or grilled corn on the cob, or locally-grown potatoes with ketchup made from bushel boy tomatoes. Old-fashioned games, live entertainment, and other activities are also planned.
The Little Locavores program will be held from 12-4 p.m. on Sunday, July 18, at the Minnesota History Center. The event is included in museum admission ($10 adults, $5 ages 6-17), or free for members of the museum. The museum is open until 5 p.m., so you’ll have plenty of time for the kids to scoop pretend ice cream in the Greatest Generation’s soda fountain, or climb and play in Grainland.
