Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Farmers markets across the nation are gaining in popularity, prompting 'The Daily Meal' to create a list of the 101 Best Farmer's Markets in America.

The St. Paul Farmers' Market has been ranked the fifth best farmers market in the country. Pike Place Farmers' Market in Seattle was ranked number one, and the Tuesday Farmers' Market in Cheyenne, Wyo., was ranked as 101st in last place.

Minneapolis Farmers' Markets rankings: The Midtown Farmers' Market has been ranked the 27th best in the nation, the Kingfield Farmers' Market is the 29th, the Northeast Farmers' Market is in 40th, the Farmers' Market Annex is 46th and the Fulton Farmers' Market is in 48th place.

Oshkosh Saturday Farmers' Market in Oshkosh, Wis., has been ranked the 44th best market in the country.

The Daily Meal determined which markets are the best based on three main criteria: what is at the market, street credibility and when it is open.

Ranking what's in the market takes into consideration the quality, number and variety of products, as well as the availability of each vendor's background information.

Street Credibility looks at what people are saying about the market, what kind of fan base it has on Facebook, Twitter and Yelp as well as any awards or recognition it has been given.

When it is open takes a look at how often the market is open weekly and year–round.
