The Northfield Farmer’s Market has been taking place for more than 40 years.

The market is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturdays from 9-11 a.m. at Riverside Park on 7th Street.

All produce is raised by residents within a 15-mile radius of Northfield. All meat products are grown by residents within a 25-mile radius of Northfield.

Mary Schaffer has been coming to the market since 1976 and was selling jam, mini hosta, free range eggs, cactus and other goods from her farm near Hampton.
