Those who are missing warm summer days at the farmers’ market will get a chance stock up on their favorite goods from local vendors at the Red River Winter Market. The Red River Market, Fargo-Moorhead’s largest farmers’ market, will host a Winter Market event on Saturday, February 9th, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead.
Visitors can shop for local food products, enjoy hot coffee, and listen to live music, all while in the warmth and comfort of the great indoors. A selection of hot foods will also be available including farmers market favorites like the French crepes from Deja Vu Catering and African
lunch plates from Adibon. This winter version of the weekly summer market will feature a wide variety of locally made pantry items including canned goods, honey, and hot sauce, household products like soaps and lotions, as well as arts and crafts. From fried pies from the Baker’s Wagon, to microgreens from Dirthead Farms, there is something for everyone at the event.
The Winter Market is also in celebration of the Red River Market’s participation in Giving Hearts Day on February 14th with a goal is to raise $14,000. Funds raised will continue valuable community programing including educational cooking demonstrations, live music and cultural
performances, SNAP/EBT outreach, and children’s programming.
The Red River Market has partnered with Downtown Moorhead Inc. to host the market at
the Hjemkomst Center. Their President and CEO, Derrick LaPoint, sees events as a catalyst for the community. “Downtown Moorhead Inc. and Red River Market share a similar vision by putting
the community first and growing a strong urban core,” said LaPoint. “Events like these support the growing momentum for positive change in our downtown.”
