AICHO’s Indigenous Food and Art Market Opening Day
The American Indian Community Housing Organization is hosting 21 local food and art vendors. Artist Sam Zimmerman will also be on hand for a book signing, and there will be a drum group honor song.
Note the location of the event is the Dr. Robert Powless Cultural Center and the adjacent foyer and hallway. The market was originally to be held in the parking lot at One Roof Community Housing, but has been moved indoors due to a strong possibility of rain.
Free parking is available in the former Lake Superior College downtown campus parking lots on Second Street across from AICHO and in the small lot across Second Avenue West next to LSC’s campus building.
Entrepreneurs will be selling items such as garden-grown produce, frozen meats, smoked white fish, wild rice, fermented foods, Indigenous teas, maple syrup, jams and jellies, herbs, honey, wild rice cupcakes, salves and cannabidiol products. Artwork on sale includes prints, apparel, beadwork, jewelry and more.
This is the first in a series of eight markets throughout the summer and fall. SNAP/EBT benefits are accepted.
Anamakaageg! Everyone is welcome.
AICHO’s Food & Art Markets are funded by the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership of Minnesota.
