AICHO to Host Food and Art Market on August 6 | Notable events

AICHO will hold its fourth Food and Arts Market this Saturday, August 6 in the parking lot of the Central Hillside Community Center, 12 East 4e Street in Duluth. Twenty-two established and emerging American Indian and BIPOC producers and artists will be featured.

Cultural activity will include a sidewalk chalk drawing of Indigenous foods by local Métis artist AnnMarie Geniusz. As part of this event, the St. Louis County WIC department will host a rally called “Latch On” that encourages, celebrates, and educates about the benefits of breastfeeding. Native American students from UMD Medical School will host a playful nutrition education tent. It’s free and open to the public.

The objective of these markets is twofold. One is food access combined with food sovereignty: bringing fresh, healthy, locally grown and produced foods and vibrant culturally creative artwork to the Hillside community and Duluth. The other is to stimulate the Indigenous food and arts economy and BIPOC in Duluth. Everyone should have access to fresh, healthy, affordable and local food. Therefore, AICHO will accept SNAP benefits and use Market Bucks on all eight markets!

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 cupcakes, salves, CBD products, as well as artwork, prints, clothing, beads and jewelry.

Anamakaageg! Everyone is welcome. Open to the public. AICHO’s Food and Art Markets are funded by the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership of Minnesota, Hunger Solutions, Essentia Health, Duluth LISC, McKnight Foundation, and the Minnesota Department of Human Services’ Behavioral Health Division.
