Our Mission

Our objectives are to expand access to fresh, locally sourced produce and goods; ease food insecurity; educate, and create a sustainable food movement to promote a healthier community.

Local Fresh Thursdays is a program of the Community Co-op of Little Falls, representing their affordable, natural, wholefoods mission.

This is a partnership with the City of Little Falls and its Tourism Committee, local agricultural community, local producers, artisans, and volunteers.

Mayor Mark Blask commented, “The City of Little Falls is excited to support and welcome Local Fresh Thursdays. Thanks to the community for coming up with this idea and the volunteers helping to execute yet another reason to visit our great community. I invite everyone in the Valley to come out on Thursdays to see all the great offerings we have in store.”

The 2020 Season

Jovanna Mueller was the 2020 Local Fresh Thursday Market Manager, and she said, “I would say the season went really well. I feel like everyone was happy for something that came together in just five weeks.”

She said that the last day was just the perfect day, “we’ve got the music now, and this is what you think of when you think of a market, with the leaves turning colors and a lot of happy vendors.”

Her sister Jordyan, also one of the organizers said, “I think it was pretty bold, number one, to try and start a second market in such a small town, but number two, to do that in the middle of a pandemic. But at the same time, I think that people really wanted something to look forward to when everything else was shut down.”

“We learned a lot and next year is going to be a staple throughout the summer and we are really excited,” Jordyan said. “I’m picturing people with their blankets out, families and kids running around, and music on the bandstand. It’s going to be beautiful and something for everyone to come to and hang out at.”

“I’m happy to see familiar faces, and also happy to see fresh faces, new faces because the word is out now and I think as things come along, it’s going to be the hip thing to do.”
