This Week at Market Fair – Oct. 1

Grab a cup of coffee before perusing the art scene at Riverwalk Market Fair this Saturday from Premiere Coffee Café. Brewed just moments before the cup is put in your hand, you know you’re getting it fresh! And who could resist that aroma permeating through the brisk autumn air at Market Fair? Plus, it’s certified organic and fair trade.  In addition to gourmet coffee, Premiere Coffee Café also serves iced coffee, hot chocolate, cold water and organic juices.

Next, quiz yourself at the Exhibit of Mathematical Art at the Welcome Tent starting at 10:00 a.m. The handsome collection of interactive puzzles and games, made of Minnesota hardwoods, can be enjoyed by all ages. Loren Larson, professor emeritus of mathematics at St. Olaf College and mathematical puzzle expert, constructed the inquisitive pieces while working with award-winning mathematics writer Barry Cipra. The puzzles and games can be appreciated on a number of levels, from novice to expert. The display will include building blocks for sculpture and design, put-together and take-apart puzzles, arrangement puzzles, sequential movement puzzles, sliding block puzzles, and two-person games.

Also, the Rotary Club of Northfield is hosting a fundraiser (a chance to win a 2011 Chrysler 200) at Riverwalk Market Fair this Saturday. The proceeds will benefit numerous Rotary initiatives and community groups including: Polio Eradication, Youth Exchange, NHS Student Scholarships, Bike Trails, Disaster Relief, Literacy, Northfield Union of Youth (Key) Shelter Box, & the Soccer Fields.
