The Season of Summer
by George Kelley
Downtown Grand Forks comes alive in the summer. The cafe tables are on the sidewalk for you to enjoy a morning brunch. The bike rack is just outside our door, so you can peddle to the bakery on your jaunt through the Greenway.
￼The Grand Cities Art Fest is on Saturday, June 11th and Sunday, June 12th in Town Square Park and across the river in the Cabella’s parking lot. Be sure to stop by our store to cool off, have lunch, or get a refreshing beverage!
The Town Square Farmers Market starts the following Saturday, June 18th from about 9am to 2pm. We have a booth there selling our breads, cookies, and pastries. You can enjoy a snack while shopping for fresh produce and krafts. Be sure to stop by and say hello to our crew! We will be set up every Saturday through the end of September.
We host local artists’ work on our walls for everyone to see. On the third Saturday from June through October from 1 to 5PM, you can stop in to visit the artist during the Art & Wine Walk. Find out about tickets and more at www.novac.org/art--wine-walk.html You can see our full calendar of all our artists on our website in the Gallery section. We will be kicking off our June Art & Wine Walk with Photography from John Cambell on Saturday, June 18 from 1 to 5PM. We will have samples of some sweets and wines for ticket holders. Stop by and say hello!
￼Of course summer wouldn’t be complete without celebrating the great fresh North Dakota grown produce. We’ve already been using these amazing tomatoes from Meadowlark Gardens on our sandwiches this season! We are featuring new vegetarian sandwiches that really showcase the great tomatoes. Our pastry team has been using the fresh berries on cheesecakes and tarts. They are enjoying the new seasonal fruits, as are many of our customers.
Slow down, sip some lemonade and eat a bittersweet chocolate sea salt cookie. Grab some bread for your weekend at lake. Take a break and enjoy the season of summer this year with Dakota Harvest Bakers.
