Come to the 1st Ever “Made by RRC” Market

November 13, 2018

It’s that time of year! Time for RRC’s  4th  Farmers’ (and Makers) Market! But, this time around the market is going to be done a bit differently.

There are so many amazing local vendors that have connections to the College (by being current students and staff, or College alumni) that we decided to showcase these incredible talents with our first ever “Made by RRC” Market! This special market will exclusively feature the local artistic talents of RRC staff, students and grads.

When: Thursday, November 29th  11:00 am – 1:30 pm
Where: Library Hallway – Notre Dame Campus (2055 Notre Dame Avenue)

Come on by, get some of your holiday shopping done, and support RRC talent! Check out the list of this years vendors:

*Can’t make it to the market? all three flavors are available for sale at the Campus Store (NDC & EDC) and well as Food Service locations (NDC & PGI).


Can you believe that Red River College has been so lucky as to have all these talented people walk the hallways, sit in the classrooms, and now they are sharing their creations with us? Let’s give a warm welcome (back) to these grads, and a friendly hello to our current staff and students on November 29th.

See you there!
