Join us for our next Pop-Up Market on June 17th from 3-5 pm in the parking spaces north of the Victor Mall, future home of the Purple Carrot Market. Vendors include: Joelle Zylka owner #241 with preserves, Ben Back owner #403 from Little Falls Microgreens, and Pavina Southamneuth owner #565 with her duck eggs. Preorders from the Alaska Wild Fish Co. Flash Sale will be delivered to the Pop-Up to be picked up during this same time. There will be extras of the most popular items available to buy on the spot, but don't wait because then you're not guaranteed to get what you want. The Purple Carrot Market will also have a table set up with swag, including yard signs, and information for any potential owners who would like to join.
The due date for putting in an order for the Alaska Wild Fish Co. Flash Sale is Wednesday, June 16th at noon. If a special order is placed (smoked fish) then the transaction will need to be completed by Friday, June 11th at noon to allow time for smoking the fish.
If you have any questions about ordering or the Pop-Up, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 320-412-3580. If you are unavailable for pickup that day and/or time, special arrangements can be made.
You will see the Purple Carrot Market in a variety of places this summer.

What to Bring
We are doing something different this year. We are asking each ownership to bring one or two unperishable food items to donated to the Morrison County Food Shelf. In exchange for the food items, you will receive a Lindy Scoop coupon for free ice cream (2 coupons per ownership); there are a total of 100 coupons to give out. Any coupons left over from the Annual Meeting will be donated to the food shelf as well. We ask that you bring your own lawn chairs; beverages will be provided by the Purple Carrot Market. Please feel free to bring along a potential owner as a guest. In case of rain, we will move the meeting to the Victor Mall, future home of the Purple Carrot Market.
We are excited to continue the progress towards our locally owned grocery store in our community. As our ownership grows, we also increase what needs to get accomplished in the coming year or two as we moved towards stage 3 the "Build" stage.
