We got an email early this week, asking if we’d be interested in setting up our booth for a Farmer’s Market scene for a movie being filmed in Northfield. Luckily, we were all available to take part in some form or another. We showed up at 4pm and set up our booth right on the Cannon River, next to Bridge Square. Then, we waited for over 4 hours until they were ready to begin filming.
When the crew arrived, they strung up lights around our booth to make it a festive scene. Then, the rest of the lights and cameras were put in place to begin filming. The extra’s in the scene ate up all of the samples we brought with us. We even sold 3 bags of curds while we were there (to include a bag of jalapeno curds to the director).
Kathy and I had so much fun laughing with everyone there. Our sides hurt when filming was complete. It’s too bad Jackie had to leave and miss all the fun.
The movie is “The Nanny”. It is a Sci Fi take on Mary Poppins, and will air on the SyFy network next year. We heard rumor that it was a dark take on the classic. Maybe our smiling faces can add some love to the scene (a “walk and talk” along the river market).
It was a great chance to get some free advertising in! We were also able to visit with our Northfield Riverwalk Market friends. Even the 4 hour wait was fun.
So, now we are famous. Look for our IMDB page soon (*wink*).
