Red River Market’s 6th season will open on Saturday, July 11th at 63 5th Street N in downtown Fargo. The farmers’ market will continue every Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. until October 31st.
Opening Day will host 60 local vendors including produce, meat, eggs, bakery, pantry items, household goods, art, and more.
The Red River Market and its vendors are taking precautions to ensure that the season is safe for all, including a new layout that will provide double the square footage to allow for social distancing. Though family programming will not take place, three live music performances per market will be held on the stage to enjoy while shopping. Visitors can find all of the vendor requirements and visitor guidelines online at www.redriver.market/covid. Market staff will be tracking local conditions as the season continues. Guidelines and programming will change depending on the status of our community’s health.
New Dining Options
Visitors will be able to grab breakfast, lunch, coffee, or drinks to go from local vendors. As the Red River Market grows, new businesses will appear including Luca’s Italian Bistro, a hot food vendor bringing the flavors of Sicily to Fargo and Preheat Pastry Shop, a bakery vendor that incorporates unexpected flavor twists thanks to many Fargo-Moorhead-centric ingredients.
All vendors accept SNAP/EBT on eligible products and Red River Market matches purchases up to $10 per person per visit at the information booth.
Since it opened in 2015, the Red River Market has quickly grown into a weekly community ritual with free community programming and family activities in a welcoming community space.
