The Renville County Market
June 16th – Sept. 29th
4:00 – 7:30pm
Join us for food, live music, vendors, craftspeople, art and a farmer’s market!
In an effort to more deeply connect with our regional communities and those communities to one another, we partnered with Developing Roots, a local organic plant company specializing in heirloom vegetable and flower seeds. Together, the Cultural Centre with Developing Roots are implementing The Renville County Market. This community event, every Wednesday during the summer months, will include food vendors, craftspeople, music, and a Farmer’s Market from 4:00 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. on the Cultural Centre’s green space.
Included in this community celebration will be free children’s art classes e.g. mask making, stone painting, chalk art, creating sculptures from found objects, bird nest building, paper plate string art, seed mosaics, etc. This opportunity of community integration is to not only bring the community together creatively, but to act as an open door for all children, regardless of ethnic or economic status, who may be discouraged by cost and may not realize that art may be created with little or no expense.
Had your picture taken on The Bench?
One of the many market visitors that had your picture taken on “The Bench” this summer? You can find those photographs here. And you have our permission to steal them for your Christmas cards!
We're looking for vendors!
We are looking for amazing vendors like you to join the Renville County Market for the 2021 season. Registration is required, but this year in an effort to provide a boost for our local small businesses there will not be a fee to have a booth. If you think what you sell would be a good fit for the Renville County Market, click on to learn more!
