Saturday Market 10/12

Event Navigation


Oct 12
9:00 am - 1:00 pm
NOTE: Our vendors (and shoppers!) will be sheltered from the weather in the train shed and INSIDE the Mill City Museum this Saturday due to cold temperatures and potential snow and rain. Thank you in advance for supporting local food--our farmers and makers depend on a reliable marketplace to sell their vegetables and other products! Remember, we open an hour later in October at 9 a.m.
