A modern approach on a classic street fair, 39 North Marketplace connects local artisans and farmers to the community every Thursday this summer. Expect arts and crafts, produce and specialty food from local farmers. Attend the cooking demos and food and health tutorials to learn where your food comes from. The Marketplace offers a hands-on experience for both children and foodies alike, whether you're playing in the Kidz Connect Zone or staying for dinner at a Victorian Square restaurant.

Chef Joe Eidem, Chef Sparky Walsh and guest chefs will entertain and educate audiences with cooking demos and chef battles. The Marketplace will also host workshops like Mad Science, a STEM based group out of Las Vegas, and free live music.
