Featured Farmer: Stoke Coffee Roasters
New from Northfield coffee aficionados Cody Larson and Caitlyn Borek are hot or cold espresso drinks, and cold-brewed cocktails (non-alcoholic coffee cocktails). In addition, they offer whole bean coffee, pour-overs, and cold brewed coffee on tap. Their coffees are from all over the world—Ethiopia, Columbia, Brazil, Guatemala, and more, changing with global harvest times, and with a new coffee every few weeks. Having started their coffee roasting business in 2015, they’re happy to be moving their roasting operation to Northfield on July 1!
Featured Artist: Gerie Thelen of Just Me Geralyn and Glass
Fused glass artist Geralyn Thelen is always trying out new ideas and new color combinations. New this year is a new painting-with-glass technique in a contemporary, nuanced style and color palette, and whimsical, brightly-colored earrings.
She continues to make her brightly colored creations in many forms— garden stakes (and miniature ones for fairy gardens), free-form bowls from fused shards of glass, trays, vases, ornaments, and even large-scale collaborative installations.
Featured Artist: Tricia Bagstad of 2 Wired Sisters
Tricia Bagstad still likes to try new things after many years as a jewelry designer. For her newest design, she coils colored wire into charms, combining them with gemstones into colorful bracelets. Her bracelets, necklaces, and earrings also incorporate beads, Bali silver, and precious metal clay.
Music on July 2 by Hammered Dulcimer Musician Kathleen Johnson
Acclaimed hammered dulcimer player and singer Kathleen Johnson returns to Riverwalk Market Fair with music that brings to life the songs and passions from Irish gypsy communities to Shaker villages.
“I’m excited to share my songs, which are original arrangements of timeless, irrepressible music from days gone by.”
