Featured Farmer:  Schoolhouse Apiary

Schoolhouse Apiary has been keeping bees since 2004.  All of their bee yards are located on organically managed land and raised without antibiotics or pesticides.  Their honey goes straight from the hive to the bottle, with no heating or processing, just minimal filtering.

They’ve been selling at Riverwalk Market Fair since it’s opening season in 2010.  The couple loves talking about their bees and introducing everyone to the delicious local honey that the bees produce from different flower sources.

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

Music

Local singer-songwriter Bobby Psenka of Poor Boy’s Delight will be at Riverwalk Market Fair debut on Opening Day.  Poor Boy’s Delight plays a mix of original music, guitar, bluegrass, rock, roots, ragtime, and many other genres.  He’ll give the market a great vibe and entertain while you peruse the artist and farmer stands.
