Junkin Market Days returned to Rochester Friday, Sept. 30 and Saturday with vendors selling everything from jewelry and candles to photography and craft cocktails.

Walking the loop around the arena, there were some fun and very ‘Minnesota’ gifts to choose from.

Like any Ear of Corn Water Tower picture in Rochester, I’m not sure if anything is more Minnesota than a print of the Green Giant statue in Blue Earth. This print is by Jason Pfitzer Photography.

Table of craft jewelry

If you’re a jewelry lover, hours could be spent sifting through the pile of craft jewelry on this table – which is only 25 cents or five pieces for $1.

There are always plenty of fun slogan shirts at Saturday markets, and I found a few favorites. This “Skol Sister” shirt by Designs by T is a fun way to support the Minnesota Vikings (if that’s something you’re interested in doing).

“It’s corn!” ornament

If you keep up with TikTok – or any social media platform, at this point – you’ve probably heard the audio of the boy who is passionate about corn. Well, a vendor ran with that passion and created a corn ornament that the buyer can color.

Fusion Bouzion Craft Cocktails were in attendance with an inventive way to enjoy your favorite cocktail. The company adds ingredients in a jar to make any of your favorite cocktails, including an old fashioned or espresso martini. You just add 10-12 ounces of a spirit, refrigerate for a few days and enjoy six to eight infused drinks.
