Main Street Bazaar this Saturday


FORT MADISON – Despite a rainy May, Fort Madison Main Street is looking forward to the 2nd Annual Main Street Grand Bazaar being held June 3rd from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Fort Madison.

According to Promotions Committee Member and downtown business owner Brenda Derr, this event is meant as a celebration of Fort Madison’s downtown and to illustrate what the district has to offer.

“The Grand Bazaar is meant to showcase our downtown,” Derr said. “We are an historic district, which in itself is something to be proud of. But, the bazaar also allows the downtown businesses, vendors, and others in the community to be a part of the changes and promise that our downtown has.”

Throughout the day, the 600, 700, and 800 blocks of Avenue G will be filled with sidewalk sales, vendors, food, and fun activities for everyone. While parents shop sales, kids can enjoy cotton candy, balloons, bubbles, and chalk art. CURE Solutions, 613 Avenue G, will be hosting a clown, free hot dogs, a water balloon bullseye, and more. The Grand Bazaar and the childrens’ activities are free to the public.

Food by 10th Street Station will be available for purchase. Be sure to stop by Hesse Seventh Street Market, who will be continuing the celebration of their grand opening on June 1. Dollhouse Dreams, 822 Avenue G, will be hosting a Toy Tester event and Perfectly Posh, 709 9th St., will be hosting an Open House.
