This Week at the Market – Aug 13

Start your Saturday morning with a visit to Riverwalk Market Fair. Anne Archibald will be serving up organic fair trade coffee with her pastries and confectionary creations. Swing over to the artists’ side to see Alexandra Betzler’s work as she creates peaceful impressions of the world with her oil and acrylic paintings.

Famous for their Brick Oven Pizza Nights, Red Barn Farm of Northfield offers organic fresh produce, pesto, pickles, jellies and more! It’s also National Farmers Market Week, so don’t miss the many free food samples offered by our local area farmers and producers, plus the newest recipes brought to Market Fair by the Northfield Hospital.

At the Welcome Tent is “A Poem for a Quarter,” as part of Market Fair’s August theme of “The Art of Words,” and dancing takes place at Bridge Square as the Arts Guild’s Sommer Sonnets perform at 11:30 before heading to the Cow. Also entertainment (banjo style) will liven up the riverfront,  thanks to musician Timmy Hollinger.
