AICHO Indigenous Food and Arts Market

The American Indian Community Housing Organization hosts local food and art vendors in the Central Hillside Community Center parking lot (One Roof Housing parking lot). At this market, there will be two live demonstrations: a cooking demonstration by North American Traditional Indigenous Food Systems and a live painting of the market by artist Michelle Defoe.

Entrepreneurs will sell items such as garden produce, frozen meats, smoked white fish, wild rice, fermented foods, native teas, maple syrup, jams and jellies, herbs, honey , wild rice cookies, ointments and cannabidiol products. Artwork for sale includes prints, clothing, beads, jewelry and more.

Anamakaageg! Everyone is welcome. SNAP/EBT benefits are accepted.

AICHO’s food and arts markets are funded by Minnesota’s Statewide Health Improvement Partnership.

In the event of inclement weather, the market will relocate to the Dr. Robert Powless Cultural Center at 212 W. Second St. The decision to relocate will be made the preceding Fridays and posted on AICHO’s Facebook page. Parking will be located in the former Lake Superior College downtown campus parking lots, across from AICHO in the large sand lot on Second Street (near the Arrowhead Place building) and in the small paved lot on Second Avenue West near the downtown campus building.
