Each Saturday, Riverwalk Market Fair offers a combination of fresh local produce, area arts and crafts, music and activities for kids.

Saturday was opening day for Riverwalk and Monica Irwin of Budding Farmers helped young and budding farmers how to grow lettuce.

Riverwalk is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through Oct. 25 in downtown Northfield’s Bridge Square.

Coming this week

Riverwalk officials say to look for dulcimer music, stage combat practice for young people, fresh local produce, and arts and crafts.

• Farmers will have early spring produce such as fresh-picked early salad greens, spinach, rhubarb, radishes, kale, and green onions, along with a variety of bedding plants, eggs, goat milk soap and flowers. Artisan foods include fresh-baked breads and delicious sweet and savory pastries jams, jellies, jams, pickles and BBQ.

• Watercolors, handcrafted leather goods, ceramics, fused glass art, fiber art, hand crafted accessories, and jewelry are among the art and fine crafts for sale. (For a complete list of the vendors scheduled for this Saturday visit (www.RiverwalkMarketFair.org.)

• Acclaimed hammered dulcimer player and singer Kathleen Johnson (www.kathleen-johnson.com) returns to Riverwalk Market Fair with music from France, Scotland, early America and the Irish music revival of the 20th Century.

• Also, find out how onstage fights really happen. Riverwalk welcomes members of the Great River Shakespeare Company of Winona, who will present demonstrations and practice in basic hand-to-hand stage combat techniques (no weapons used). This is recommended for youth ages 11 to 18. Youth ages 7 to 10 must be accompanied by an adult. Visit www.grsf.org for more information.
