 Featured Farmer:  My Sweet Greens MN

Dean and Jayne Bredlau, owners of My Sweet Greens MN, are new vendors to the market this year in 2018.  This is their second year growing and selling microgreens.  They offer many different microgreen varieties such as sunflower, sweet peas, zesty mix, radish, and a few other “mixes” with different greens mixed together.  They are always happy to give samples of their products so make sure to stop by and visit them at Riverwalk Market Fair.  www.mysweetgreensmn.com

 Featured Artist:  Zach Stadler Photography

If your home or office needs a tropical feel, Zach Stadler’s photography would fill that void for you.  Over the last few years he’s had the pleasure of traveling to some of the most exotic destinations in the world. With the territory, he quickly developed a love for the ocean and photography naturally became his tool for capturing my surreal experiences both in and out of the water.

His photography is so vivid and beautiful it will feel like you can feel the ocean and warmth through his photos.  If you’d like to see some of his work, go to www.zachstadler.com
