Urban Harvest returns to downtown Bismarck for its ninth year. Directors Tina Mitchell and Eloi Cyril stopped by the set of Country Morning Today to give us a preview.
Urban Harvest started with the idea that local food growers and vendors should have an opportunity to sell their products, and local customers should be able to buy them. Last year, Urban Harvest drew more than 5,000 people over its six-week run, including more than 1,200 children.
Though Urban Harvest was founded on, and is still centered around, the idea of local food, it's become more of a something-for-everyone attraction over the years. There are artisans, crafters and entertainers, including activities for kids and weekly musical acts. Nearly 150 local artists will showcase their work during this year's Urban Harvest.
Urban Harvest will take place on 4th Street, between Broadway Avenue and Thayer Avenue, in downtown Bismarck. It begins at 10:00 a.m. on July 11 and will run each Thursday through August 15. For more information, you can visit www.bismarckurbanharvest.com.
