Decorah Farmers Market begins the first week of May

The Decorah Farmers Market opened on Wednesday, May 3, with live music by Brennan Allsworth, door prizes and farmers and vendors. The Saturday market will follow on Saturday, May 6, from 8 to 11 a.m. 

The market runs every Wednesday and Saturday through the end of October and is followed by four indoor markets in November and December. Shoppers will find local farm, food and craft producers from within 60 miles of Decorah. 

“Everyone is welcome at the market! We love that people come to support their neighbors’ businesses and enjoy an all-ages, open-air public market,” said Kristin Eggen, Decorah Farmers Market Manager. “We’re more or less your outdoor, crafty, musical grocery store.” This is Eggen’s fourth year managing the market. 

At each Saturday market, there will be live music from 9-11 a.m. The first Saturday market will feature Slapdash Bluegrass. Musicians who are interested in playing during the 2023 season can email

On Saturday, May 13, the Decorah Farmers Market will host an Art Market featuring local artists alongside favorite market vendors.

The market is located on the corner of River Street and Heivly Street in the Oneota Community Co-Op parking lot. Parking is located in the parking lot, the nearby municipal lot, and on the street. Biking and walking are encouraged! 

This year is the Farmers Market’s 48th year. Learn more about the Decorah Farmers Market at
