Mission & Governance

The mission of Riverwalk Market Fair is to provide Northfield-area farmers, food artisans, and artists with a venue to show and sell their products during the summer months.

The all-volunteer team of local artists and farmers who operate the Fair 20 Saturdays each summer season are dedicated to creating a viable downtown, sustainable market, and to making the vendor experience and that of its visitors the best it can be.

Their efforts along with the financial support from the City of Northfield, Economic Development Authority, and other community partners are what make Riverwalk Market Fair possible.


Riverwalk Market Fair is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors from the community.
