May 6, 2020 – Important Message from our Board of Directors

May 6th COVID-19: A message to the Riverwalk Market Fair vendors.
The health, safety and well-being of our community, customers, staff and vendors are our priority.

The Riverwalk Market Fair Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to delay the opening of the market. We are closely following the advice of the public health authorities as well as keeping our mission in the forefront. We will be meeting every two weeks to discuss and decide an opening date if that is possible. We understand that if RMF does open, you will need to prepare inventory and product and so we will provide you with a 3-4 week notification. The Board of Directors will meet again May 18th to consider a mid-June opening, and again June 1st to make a decision for a July opening and so forth.

We truly hope we will be able to return to our operations as soon as possible. We will keep you informed about any updates we might have. Additional communication as our plans progress will come out by email, Facebook and our website www.RiverwalkMarketFair.org.

Sincerely,
Riverwalk Market Fair, Board of Directors

The Riverwalk Market Fair Board of Directors wants to assure you that we are monitoring developments of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic very closely. We are currently awaiting a ruling from the City of Northfield regarding the prospect of opening on our scheduled date of May 30, 2020.

If we are able to open, we are required to comply with the Governors Executive Orders (20-04, etc.), the Northfield Police department and the City of Northfield. Additionally, we will strongly consider the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC, and the MFMA (Minnesota Farmer’s Market Association), as we work closely with our Vendor Partners to assure a safe and healthy market.
