Crookston’s Marketplace kicked off Thursday at Downtown Square with the theme “Uniquely Crookston” featuring businesses and vendors “unique” to Crookston.

Local businesses had samples, information, and products on-hand, plus there was plenty of shopping, food, activities and live entertainment by Anthony Diaz.

The Marketplace will be held every Thursday all summer from 4-8 p.m. at the Square with a new theme each week.
