Pine River Market Square to host end-of-season event Friday

The fifth annual Pine River Market Square: a farmers’ & crafters’ market will celebrate the 2013 season and thank customers by hosting live music, serving cake and hosting a drawing for a gift box full of market goodies on Friday, September 27, 2:30-5:30pm in downtown Pine River.

The harvest is plentiful with tomatoes, peppers, squash, pumpkins, basil, wild rice, carrots, beets, onions, potatoes, grapes, broccoli, cabbage, fresh breads, unique crafts, eggs, processed free-range chickens, and maybe even some remaining corn on the cob.  

The gift box drawing will be at 4:00pm on September 27 and if you live in our area, you need not be present to win.  Come and sign up, enjoy cake, get your local produce, and good celebrate with friends!

The market annual meeting is set for Friday, October 11 with potluck at 6pm and meeting around 6:30pm at the Hunt Utilities Group campus just west of town on CR2.  

For further information on the market go to, or call the market number, 218-838-6058.  If you’d like general information about farmers’ markets and various regulations, visit the Minnesota Farmers’ Market Association web site at
