[ARCHIVED] Farmers Market Season Recap

Farmers Market Season RecapThe 2021 Elk River Farmers Market has come to an end, but we’d be remiss to go without mentioning the generosity demonstrated by many of our vendors throughout the season. Each week following the market, a representative from CAER Food Shelf  was on site taking donations of unsold produce, still at the peak of its freshness but may go unused before the next market opportunity for the vendor.

Throughout the course of the season, vendors donated **4,130** pounds of produce to CAER, providing fresh, healthy options to local families in need. 

Other 2021 fun market facts include: sponsor dollars and participation were at an all-time high with $9,000 contributed to the market. Attendance steadily increased throughout the season, and programs like Power of Produce, Senior Thursdays and the Frequent Shopper Program were a huge hit this season! Not to mention, we had 45 unique vendors selling at the market in 2021.

Bravo vendors, for a great season, and thank you to all who showed your local support by shopping at the Elk River Farmers Market! Also, be sure to mark your calendars for the 2022 season opener on Thursday, June 16, 2022!
