Map of Friends School Plant Sale in Minnesota State Fair Midway parking lot

 

The 2021 sale was in the huge parking lot that’s the Midway during the State Fair. It was several times larger than the Grandstand. Aisles were much wider than usual, and the number of shoppers at a time was one-quarter as many or less. (Find out more details about what this larger, outdoor sale is like here.)

The parking area is accessed from Dan Patch (which is called Commonwealth if you are coming from the west). Park on the west end of the big parking lot. Shoppers entered from the west end of the fenced-in plant sale area.

Detailed maps were handed out at the sale entrance, showing where individual plants by catalog number were located.

In case you're not familiar with finding the Midway area at the Minnesota State Fair, here's a locator map of the general area:
