Warm weather and an early spring kept the produce growing and business flowing in farmers markets around the Red River Valley last summer, but vendors and market organizers may tell a different story this year.
Yet another week of wet weather has prevented Minnesota farmers from getting their planting done. The weekly crops and weather report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture says only 2.6 days were rated suitable for fieldwork last week.
North Dakota's ongoing wet weather is continuing to halt or slow planting progress across the state. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly crop report that there were 3 days suitable for fieldwork on average last week.

Wet weather across much of North Dakota has continued to prevent farmers and ranchers from making progress planting crops. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly crop report that there were 2.3 days suitable for fieldwork on average last week.
