Featured Farmer:  Season Flowers

Ong Yang, born and raised in St. Paul, raises beautiful flowers and produce that their family sells each week at the Riverwalk Market Fair.  Everything they sell is locally grown and gives them lots of pride when they get to eat and sell what they’ve worked so hard for.   Once you visit their stand and talk with the family, you won’t leave empty handed!

Featured Artist: Seams Knotty

Gretchen Fierke makes accessories for both men & women, plus some children’s accessories.  She tries to find fun & vibrant fabrics to make a simple item stand out.  After moving to Northfield in 1999 she began teaching pre-school at Northfield Montessori and has for the past eleven years.

Music on August 5 by Pan-handlers

            The Pan‑handlers are a versatile 15-piece steel drum band based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  If you have the need for some tropical sounds this band will help fill that.  They have a unique sound and will be playing a large variety of music at Saturday’s Riverwalk Market Fair.
