Public Events

North Market hosts numerous public events throughout the year. Some events are programmed to directly benefit the merchants, farms, makers, and the community at large. Other events are fundraising events that help with the operating costs for both North Market facilities. Board participation in North Market events is absolutely essential to the success of our organization.
