Join us for food, live music, vendors, 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 Farmers and Artisans Market. This community event, every Wednesday during the summer months, provides food, vendors, craftspeople, music, art and a Farmer’s Market from 4:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. on a closed off street between the Cultural Centre and the City Park.

We're looking for vendors!
We are always looking for amazing vendors like you to join the Renville County Market. Do you have a postive attitude, great community spirit and love to laugh? Then we’d love to have you! Approval is required prior to selling at the market. As a makers/farmers market we do require that vendors grow or make the majority of what they sell to honor the unique qualities of this market. We look forward to connecting with you!
