2017 Vendors Meeting Held April 30th

At the vendor’s meeting, we introduced the Board members; we have 3 new ones–Rick Hirsch, Marcy Goss, and Anna Chance.  We introduced Brian Randolph, the new market manager.
We explained that the City of Northfield intends to end its subsidy of the market, so that, over the next three years, we need to either reduce expenses or increase income by about $10,000. So this year we are reducing our print media ads and going to more social media, increasing the number of vendor spots in the market, and increasing the $12/week vendor fee to $13/week. Next year we will continue to adjust our budget. Many people made helpful suggestions.
We answered questions from new vendors, and we handed out this year’s postcards. If you want a supply to hand out for publicity, let me know, and we can arrange to get you some.  We will also have posters to hand out to downtown businesses and tote bags for sale.
If you are interested in being a vendor this year please contact Brian @ manager@riverwalkmarketfair.org or by calling 507-301-8203.  Our first market fair is coming up soon, June 3rd from 9 am to 1 pm!
