Learn more below about all the activities taking place on Thursdays downtown.

Nicollet Market

Take a stroll through the Nicollet Market each Thursday from 10 am – 2:30 pm on Nicollet between 6th and 8th Streets. This year’s market will feature a fantastic group of local small businesses that will feature flowers, baked goods, coffee, chocolates, gifts, merchandise and more. Look for produce once the growing season allows as well. The Nicollet Market is a great way to break up the day, take a walk through the heart of downtown and find amazing products while helping support local businesses.
