Consumers may also learn tips about gardening and farming planning and which produce is available at the markets due to seasonal grow periods. The Duluth Farmers and Artisan Market is also a fun place to shop for other homemade items such as jams, jellies, pickles, salsa, canned vegetables, honey, cut flowers, herbs, spices, homemade candles, soaps, lotions, pottery, baskets etc. The market occasionally features dairy products, meat and seafood products.
