Farmers market

The annual Pride of Dakota Day Farmers Market at the state Capitol featured more than a dozen vendors who sold their produce in front of the Capitol in 2017. Another 50 vendors located inside Memorial Hall, Legislative Hall and the west entrance to sell locally made products from home decor, foods, apparel and jewelry. The Pride of Dakota program is run by the North Dakota Department of Agriculture's marketing and information division.

North Dakota businesses will transform the state Capitol into a shopping mall for locally made products on Thursday during the annual Pride of Dakota Day.

“This is a showcase for North Dakota businesses and the Pride of Dakota program, giving Capitol visitors and state employees an opportunity to see the range of products made right here in our state,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. “The owners and employees of 50 Pride of Dakota businesses will be selling, sampling and talking about their products.”

Vendor booths will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Capitol’s Memorial Hall, Legislative Hall and west end ground floor.

Pride of Dakota companies manufacture a wide range of products, including home decor, foods and condiments, apparel, personal care items, recordings and paper goods.

Goehring also encouraged Capitol visitors and employees to take in the farmers market from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. near the steps on the south side of the state Capitol.

“More than a dozen vendors will be selling fresh-picked North Dakota fruits and vegetables, and honey,” Goehring said. “The market is a great place to meet the growers and stock up on seasonal produce.”
