Featured Farmer:  Martha’s Eats & Treats

 

Goodies at Martha’s RMF booth

If you have a favorite treat at Martha’s Eats and Treats be sure to get there early because there is often very little left by the time Riverwalk closes, and there is always a line to start off the morning.. Martha always has a selection of both savory and sweet filled croissants and tarts. Staple selections include cinnamon rolls, mini quiches, fruit, cream, coconut, and almond croissants, and a savory turnover with cheese and spinach or other vegetables. Martha has been at Riverwalk Market Fair since it began in 2010.   As of 2015 she opened a retail store in Dundas that is open Fridays and Saturdays and for catering.

Featured Artist: Jae Mawby Ceramics

Jae creates wall vases out of stone ware and bowls with assorted styles and shapes.  She grew up in New Hampshire and went to college at St. Olaf, graduating in the spring of 2016.  Now she lives in Northfield and loves to design ceramics relating to bodies of water, family, and her ties to others.  Check out some of her work at www.jaemawby.com

Music on September 16 by Matt Arthur

 

Matt Arthur

Matt Arthur is a Southern Minnesotan with a voice that calls to mind Johnny Cash, Nick Cave, and John Darnielle. He writes and records songs you’d be pleased to hear on a playlist packed with early-70s Stones, Neil Young, and more recent offerings from Sturgill Simpson and the Drive By Truckers. He’ll be playing this Saturday at Riverwalk Market Fair and will be wowing the crowd with his great music.

Featured Farmer:  Groundwire Coffee

Groundwire is a small, quality focused coffee roaster based out of beautiful Northfield.  They source and roast great tasting coffee for people looking to ramp up their morning cup, and look forward to sharing some tasty coffees at the market.  Cody Larson said about his coffee “I want everyone that comes to our tent thinking that coffee is simply a bitter, brown beverage – a delivery system for caffeine and nothing more, to walk away with the realization that coffee can be enjoyable, that it can actually taste good.”

Featured Artist: Wolcott Art
The ultimate recycler, Jennifer uses her plasma cutter to cut bird garden ornament bodies and wings from old, rusty file cabinets.  She puts the parts in a cement mixer with sand to smooth and take off the finish. Then she lays out pieces and paints them with a stencil in one hand and a paint can in the other. She assembles the pieces with no attention to color or pattern — just two types of wings and two types of bird bodies put together randomly.  The stencil colors leave the birds looking like they are cut out of fabric and quilted together.   Also check out Jennifer’s tall steel garden ornaments with whimsical names – Curly Qs and Lollipops.
