Do you have extra garden produce and want a little extra spending money? Do you enjoy fresh garden produce, but don't plant a garden? A new twice-weekly Farmers' Market being held in Max may just meet your needs.

The Farmers' Market provides a venue at which participants can sell their fresh garden produce, jams and jellies or other canned items, or baked goods to those who are in search of delicious home-grown and homemade fare.

The Farmers' Market will be held on Main Street in front of the Max Cafe every Saturday at 9:30 am and every Wednesday at 10:00 am. Market sessions are expected to end at about noon, or when items sell out.

The scheduled market days/times will continue through September 20th, or as long as there are interested vendors. There are no fees to participate: simply provide your own set-up. Click here for a printable Farmers' Market flyer. If you have questions, contact Kathy at 701-679-2499.

The Farmers' Market is organized by Kathy Huettl, and is sponsored by maxnd.com.

Original Honor Wall names sought

Photo of original Honor Wall

The Max Park Board is attempting to recreate a listing of all of the names of individuals commemorated on the original Max Honor Wall (pictured above). Over time, and with the deterioration of the original wooden monument, some names were lost. The Park Board wants to make sure that all individuals originally listed continue to be remembered and honored.

If you know of some or all of the names listed on the original monument, please contact Raymond Iverson or the maxnd.com site manager. For a larger version of the photo above, click on the photo.
