The Purple Carrot Market is having a "Game" Night at Rice Creek Game Farm. The kind of "Game" we are talking about will be wild and whet your palate.
This is an ownership growth event. Bring a potential owner to the dinner which will consist of: pheasant, duck, wild rice pheasant hot dish, cole slaw, roll, dessert and beverage served buffet style. There will be an cash bar and live music.
Guests who become owners the night of the event will be entered in a drawing to win a wild game dinner basket.
Enjoy this full-filled evening for $30 a person on September 29th. Social hour is at 5:30 and dinner starts at 6:00. Sign up by clicking on the "Game" Night Dinner button.

Prior to the Purple Carrot Market Store Design "Parti", we would like to see each of you gather photos. Go out and visit local co-ops and take pictures of what you like. Visit pinterest, search online, use magazines and save photos. Send digital copies of the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 23rd, as Widseth will create vision boards from theses photos for display at the open house. If you are unable to send digital copies you are welcome to just bring your photos to the event as well.
I'll help you get started with this flipbook. Get inspired by paging through the flipbook (click on the button) and see if there are photos you like. The Purple Carrot Market has a great future ahead.
The Store Design "Parti" is taking place Wednesday, August 25th from 4-6 pm for owners only at the Victor Mall Building. The "Parti" will be in an open house style with board members there to talk and listen with you along with personnel from Widseth. Come see what Widseth, together with the Store Design Committee, came up with for a floor layout.

The Purple Carrot Market will be serving a light snack of bruschetta and a beverage with ingredients from local owner/producers; the Little Falls Bakery will provide the baguettes and purple carrot cookies.
This is your chance to be heard on the feel and vibe of our community owned grocery store with the architects in the room.
Joelle Zylka owner #126 will demonstrate the basics of making jams and jellies. She will be on Purple Carrot Market's Facebook Live on Tuesday, August 31st at 7:00 pm CDT. Joelle has crafted the art of jam and jelly making over the years. She will be able to give you helpful hints on how to get the perfect batch. You can find her at the Farmer's Market on Saturdays in the Boys and Girls Club parking lot from 7-noon.
Our next Pop-Up Market is this Thursday from 3-5:30 in the parking spaces behind the Victor Mall Building.
At the May Pop-Up Market, our owners taste tested plant based cold press coffee and sparkling caffeinated water from a small business in the twin cities area called Big Watt. You have an opportunity to taste test another produce made right here in Little Falls at Sprout.
FAH Bissap 100% Natural Hibiscus Tea is made by Fortuna Alexander. You will be able to sample up to four different flavors: regular hibiscus, hibiscus with ginger, hibiscus with tangerine and hibiscus with pineapple. We ask that you fill out a questionnaire to provide us with your input. This potentially could be a product we carry at the Purple Carrot Market in the future.
DCBL Certified Organic Farm owner #399 will return with homemade bread, meat sticks, and granola to name a few items. DCBL Certified Organic Farm raises the way nature intended meats and eggs raise on certified organic pastures and crops. DCBL will have roasts, chops, brats, chicken breasts and drumsticks plus more at the market.
Joelle Zylka owner #126 will be there with her popular pickles, preserves, spice packets, and salve.
Ron Woltjer from Foothill Orchard owner #324 will have First Kiss, Zestar and Sweet Tango apples. Apples can be eaten fresh or used in your favorite apple recipes.
Nancy Anderson owner #19 will have garden fresh produce. You can't buy this fresh in any conventional grocery store. The fresher the produce the more nutritious it is.
When you come to the Pop-Up Market, don't forget to donate your reusable canning jars and egg cartons to our vendors. Remember to bring your reusable shopping bag to shop to cut down on waste.
