Despite the cool weather and the rain we're experiencing now, it's inevitable that summer will soon be arriving and with it the downtown Northfield tradition of the Riverwalk Market Fair. This open-air market can be found set up all around the Bridge Street Square area of downtown Northfield and features the beautiful Cannon River as its backdrop. This year's first Riverwalk Market Fair is Saturday, June 3, and will be held every Saturday, from 9AM to 1PM, through October 14.

According to the Riverwalk Market Fair website, their mission is to "provide Northfield-area farmers, food artisans, and artists with a venue to show and sell their products during the summer months." As you wander through all the booths you'll be pleasantly surprised by the variety of things that each vendor has to offer. From locally grown produce and plants, to beautifully crafted artwork, jewelry, unique handmade items for the home and more. Musicians can be found performing throughout the morning, giving this whole event a festival like atmosphere.

I know my wife and I will be taking some time this summer to stop by the Riverwalk Market Fair. I really enjoy checking out the artwork and picking up some fresh, organically grown vegetables. Hopefully we'll see you there.
