Minnesotans love to eat! We enjoy a wide variety of Minnesota food and drink items that are produced all across our state.

Family farmers, chefs, food artisans, farmers' market vendors and other food-related businesses bring the highest quality, seasonal, fresh, locally grown Minnesota food products to our tables and restaurants.

Some of our favorite "eats" come from our varied heritage. We love the foods that can be grown right here in Minnesota. Our Native American population has taught us how to hunt and gather many tasty foods.

Made in Minnesota Products include many foods.  SPAM, Bee Free Honee (as seen on Shark Tank), Angie’s Popcorn, Sturdiwheat Baked Goods, Norsland Lefse, and Buffalo Gal Meats are just a few. Enjoy!

Recipes that have a distinct "Minnesota flavor" are the stuff of legend--food legend anyhow.

Minnesota Grown Wild Rice is a tasty, and healthy, grain that we use in so many ways.

Minnesota was settled by immigrants from many countries. The Scandinavians among us have added their own unique Minnesota food list with lefse, and lutefisk, hot dish and wonderful pastries. The Swedes, Finns, Germans, Irish and Italians have contributed their national recipes as well.

Camping is one of the top recreational activities in Minnesota. Cooking, and food, requires some planning ahead. 

Easy Camping Recipes will help you minimize the time preparing food for camping meals.

Food to Take Camping will help you create your shopping list. It's hard to find a grocery store once you are in some of our more remote campgrounds.

Many of our favorite recipes are based on native foods including wild rice recipeswild game and fish recipes and recipes that use wild berries.

And just for fun we share recipes based on some of our foods that have actually become Minnesota state symbols on our Minnesota State Symbol Recipes page.

Minnesota Clover Honey makes a wonderful sweetener for any recipe.

Minnesota Wineries: In addition to an abundance of food, Minnesota also produces wonderful wines crafted from grapes and even wild fruits that grow here.

Many visitors to Minnesota are surprised to learn that they can visit Minnesota vineyards and experience wine-tastings, tours and other winery events.

Our family loves to spend time visiting Minnesota orchards, pumpkin patches and "pick-your-own" farms.

There are festivals and events that take place all around the state in celebration of Minnesota grown foods.

Minnesota fall festivals often feature Minnesota grown apples, pumpkins and other tasty treats.
