The market’s golden anniversary will be in 2025. 

A press release said the Decorah Farmers Market Board of Directors is celebrating resilience by hiring Cornelius and Coffey. “Having two co-managers will help ensure coverage over the entire season,” the release said. “Two minds from different generations solving problems should help create effective solutions for the future of the market.” 

The Decorah Farmers Market has helped more than 50 small local businesses and farms grow and succeed over the years, according to market information. The market offers a variety of goods and produce from eggs, honey, maple syrup, fruits, vegetables, meats, pickled and baked products. Shoppers can also find many kinds of artisan products and craft items.
