Goods from the Woods™ (GFTW) is a Minnesota-grown initiative that combines educational workshops, an ‘Up North’ specialty forest products marketplace and a community festival to celebrate northern forests and promote a vibrant forest-based economy.

The 4th annual ‘Up North’ Marketplace will be open to the public on Saturday, September 16 from 9:00 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday, September 17 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. The Marketplace is a premier event designed to showcase the unique and outstanding work of northern Minnesota’s forest-based artists and producers.

In 2005, the Marketplace drew more than 5,500 visitors – nearly doubling its draw from the inaugural year. Now in its fourth year, events are getting even bigger and better!
