 Featured Farmer: 

Ruf Acres Farm

Ramon Rodriguez Carrion & John Besse run/own Ruf Acres Farm in Faribault.  They take immense pride in their early ripened tomatoes which are grown in a hot house.  When owner John Besse and his wife decided they wanted to start growing tomatoes, they wanted a way to have tomatoes before the 4th of July.  In the past few years they’ve had ripe tomatoes by June 1st!  They also sell strawberries grown at their farm and also rich, tasty maple

syrup.

Ruf Acres Farm stand is definitely a “can’t miss” at Riverwalk Market Fair, but get there early to get those juicy, red, beautiful tomatoes.

 

 

Featured Artist:  David Peterson Maker

David Peterson, of Northfield, is back as a vendor at Riverwalk Market Fair in 2018 after taking a year hiatus in 2017.  David crafts mostly simple, useful forms like bowls, platters, boxes, and vases.  Each item is shaped by hand from a single blank of raw wood, often green.   David remarked “as the piece spins, I remove wood using      various gouges, scrapes, and chisels.  As I remove wood, I figure out what shape is best for the piece of wood I’m working on.

            David loves working with wood for three reasons: First, the wood itself, the second being the delight of woodturning comes from making the shapes, and third is the usefulness of the piece.

Music on June 9 by Matt Arthur
