The Decorah Farmers Market will reopen for the 2021 outdoor season on Saturday, May 1, at 8 a.m. on the corner of River Street and Heivly Street downtown Decorah. This open air market is free and open to the public, and offers local food, craft, music, and community connection. Music will be provided by Namoli Brennet from 9 a.m. until the market closes at 11 a.m.
The Decorah Farmers Market season runs from May through October, 8-11 a.m. on Saturdays and 3-6 p.m. on Wednesdays.   There will be live music every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. New this year, the farmers market will host local food demonstrations on the second Saturday of the month. Stay tuned for special community partnerships with Art Haus, the Winneshiek Energy District, Winneshiek Idea House, and more area community organizations! 
The Decorah Farmers market accepts EBT, credit, and debit cards at the information table. There shoppers exchange these funds for “market money” tokens that can be used with any vendor at the market. 
For years the Decorah Farmers market has partnered with area agencies to make healthy local food accessible to everyone. In June the Decorah Farmers Market will continue to partner with the Decorah Food Pantry to  provide nutritious local food and choice to food pantry clients through a “Pantry to Market” coupon program. Additionally, select vendors will also accept Winneshiek Medical Center senior nutrition coupons and state-issued WIC coupons. 
In an effort to continue to promote public health at the market, hand sanitizer will continue to be offered at all entrances to the market, and customers are encouraged to refrain from touching items before purchasing and abide by area health and mask guidelines.
Local producers who would like to vend at the market can contact market manager Kristin Eggen for more information: 608-306-1246 or  decorahmarket@gmail.com. Learn more about the Decorah Farmers Market by following them on Facebook or Instagram.
