This Weeks Market!

This Week's Event

This Saturday is Bead Day! Visit our KIDS’ CLUB booth and have some fun making your own bead creation!

This Saturday we also have 2 very special groups joining us. MADD Ottawa (Mother’s Against Drunk Driving) will be hosting a voluntary toll on the fairgrounds leading up to the Market. Please consider donating to this great cause. 

Tysen’s Mission to a Million is also here hosting a fun corn hole toss to raise awareness for his upcoming Summer Bash taking place at Irish Hills Golf Course on August 11th! Tysen’s wish is to raise $1 million for the Make-A-Wish Foundation so that he can adopt 100 wishes for other Make-A-Wish kids!
