Featured Farmer:  Twin Oaks Orchard

    Pat McBride and his wife Jan have owned their farm for twelve years and have been developing their two-acre orchard ever since.  They offer naturally grown apples with no synthetic input.  Pat works hard at growing good fruit that, although not always cosmetically perfect, is free of synthetic pesticides, fungicides, etc.  Their farm and orchard are located near Wanamingo.

Friend of the Market: Northfield Public Library Book Bike

           

Northfield Library Book Bike at the market

The Northfield Book Bike has been at almost every Riverwalk Market Fair this summer and early fall.  The bike is a combination of a bike that pulls a trailer with a two-sided book shelf.  The Book Bike has been a great hit in the community this summer; hitting up many different areas in town and different events.  It’s become a staple of the market and is a large attraction for kids of all ages!

Music on September 23rd by Martin Anderson

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.
