Featured Farmer:  Groundwire Coffee

Featured Artist:  Prairie Sun Design

            Nancy Stroessner of Apple Valley will be bringing her hand crafted purses, pillows, headbands, hair clips, hats, and scarves back again this year.  She states “It started with Barbie.  Before I was allowed anywhere near a sewing machine, I was designing evening gowns for Barbie with stick pins and pretty floral handkerchiefs, and manipulating folds of fabric into bustles and borders.”

Always sewing, always developing her skills and knowledge of sewing and handwork, and now is allowed to chase her dream of being a creator and purveyor of her own designs.  Her website is www.prairiesundesign.com

Vintage Band Festival  

The Vintage Band Festival is back this Saturday with 10 bands in 12 hours.  That means they must start early, which is good news for Riverwalk Market Fair.  While browsing art and seasonal produce, enjoy the New Prague Community Band, Mariachi Mi Tierra, Sheldon Theater Brass Band, Southside Aces, Amerikan Poijat (Boys of America), MN State Band, Twin Cities Brass Band, Brio Brass, Metro Brass, Copper Street Brass, and Buddy Koopmann Orchestra.
