REMSEN — Remsen businesses and area vendors will take part in Remsen Market Days Saturday, July 9, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Vendors will be located on the north end of Remsen's wide main street.

According to one organizer, Jeri Hofland, more than 30 vendors will be out with a wide variety of items, including boutique clothing, collectibles, homemade items, household essentials, jewelry, antiques, Tupperware, Tastefully Simple and Pampered Chef.

Vendors come from all over northwest Iowa, Hofland noted.

Food trucks will also be located in the vendor area.

"This is our second year of doing a vendor event in Remsen," Hofland explained.

Last year, First American Pickers was a new business in town. Gracie Gentle, one of the owners, approached me and wanted to do an open house type of event, a grand opening for their business, but she wanted a vendor fair and have people come into town," Hofland said.

"I said sure we can find some people."

"Last year the businesses and vendors had great reviews and thought it was amazing for Remsen, so we thought we'd bring it back," Hofland continued.

Hofland and Gentle are coordinating this year's event.

In addition to the food trucks, several of the bars in Remsen will open up early to serve lunch as well.

Goodie bags with coupons will be given to the first 50 people attending the event. Purchases made will enter customers for a chance to win prizes, as well.
