Riverwalk Market Fair was created in 2009 to provide a sales and marketing venue for local small and emerging businesses — farmers, food artisans and artists. If you have a product you would like to sell at the Market consider becoming one of our vendors. There is no better way to spend a summer Saturday morning — sharing your creations, making money and hanging out with fun people who love what they do.

Come Grow With Us!
Riverwalk Market Fair is Growing Every Year.

We measure success in five ways:

1. Visitors to Riverwalk Market Fair are spending more. According to our annual Economic Impact Studies (random surveys of visitors conducted every Saturday)  the number of out of town visitors (and the amount they spend) is steadily growing.

2. Riverwalk Market Fair is garnering more media attention. The significant increase in the amount of media coverage and feature articles Riverwalk Market Fair has received, particularly in the Twin City metro newspapers and magazines, helps us tell our story to a broader audience.

3. Word of mouth works! Our research indicates a growing number of people enjoy the event and are recommending a visit to Riverwalk Market Fair to their friends and family.

4. Our investment in advertising is paying off. Our annual ad placements in Twin City, Statewide and Regional magazines and travel guides is building awareness not only for Riverwalk Market Fair but for Historic Northfield as a weekend destination.

5. We must be a happy vendor venue! In 2013 saw a 60% increase in the number of vendors selling their high-quality goods. Goods that Riverwalk Market Fair visitors want to buy.

If you have a product to sell consider joining us!

Riverwalk Market Fair is on the look out for high-quality vendors in all three categories — locally grown produce, artisan foods and hand-crafted art. If you are an artist that specializes in what we call “high craft” — hand-crafted items in wood, leather, paper, fiber, etc. please contact us!
Riverwalk Market Fair is growing the next generation of Northfield entrepreneurs. We provide free booths for youth
to sell products they have created.
