Miss the markets of summer? You're in luck because a fall farmer's market is headed to the Duluth area just before Thanksgiving.

This is one of many fun fall events coming to the Northland (or should we say fall / winter). One great example of this is the annual 5K that takes place on Thanksgiving. The Gobble Gallop takes place in downtown Duluth once the holiday rolls around every year.

Another related event is the Bacon, Bloodies and Bands, an event for those 21+ at the DECC. It is exactly as it sounds: there is live music, bacon and Bloody Mary's. The event takes place on Saturday, November 19th.

If you want to look forward to winter (at your own risk), there are a handful of winter events coming up as well. The popular ice castles attraction is one of the most noteworthy and for good reason! I went last year and it was awesome.

One major event coming up was just announced. It is a fall farmer's market in Lincoln Park taking place on Thursday, November 17th. This event will go from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Harrison Community Center.

This market has not happened for a few years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The market is extra special in that it is meant to reduce the stress of putting together a Thanksgiving meal. Inflation has made groceries especially expensive and this is aimed at helping relieve that burden, if only a bit.

It is also meant as a way for the community to come together once again, as gatherings become a thing once again. Organizers have teamed up with Hunger Solutions Minnesota and Essentia Health for this, so SNAP customers can get a dollar-for-dollar match up to fifteen dollars. This is for items eligible for EBT.

They have also teamed up with Essentia Health, Rotary Club of Duluth, the Junior League and the Power of Produce to offer free goods for kids under eighteen and those over sixty. Those within the age requirements can get four dollars in free produce.

You can also get some early Christmas shopping done all while shopping local. There will be fresh produce, hot sauce, canned goods, eggs, meat, soap and handcrafted gifts. Harrison Park, where the event is held, can be found at 3002 West 3rd Street.

According to a press release for the event, there will also be free soup so you can get in the fall spirit. It will be provided by the Whole Foods Co-op in Duluth. Community Action Duluth, the organizers of the event, aim to "empower and engage" the Duluth community in an effort to help eliminate poverty.

If you have any questions regarding the event, you can reach out to organizers at Community Action Duluth via phone at 218-726-1665 or reach out to them via email at kayla@communityactionduluth.org.
