GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - From garden to ballpark, it's not all burgers and brats at Target Field. If you know where to look, you can score some healthy eats and it's all served up by some pint sized vendors.
Sue Moore's from Roots For The Home Team joined us at 4pm to dish the details.
Roots for the Home Team partners with youth garden programs in ethnically diverse areas of the Twin Cities. Using their produce grown as ingredients, and their inventive nature to help develop the recipes, together we sell delicious salads at Target Field on Minnesota Twins' weekend home games.
