WHERE DOES THE NAME ASKOV FINLAYSON COME FROM?

Our name comes from two neighboring towns in Northern Minnesota. Askov and Finlayson share a highway exit that our founders passed countless times growing up on the way to and from the family cabin, one of their favorite places on earth. On the way up, the sign reads Finlayson Askov. And on the way down, it reads Askov Finlayson. It’s fair, and that’s the best part.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

Our design offices are located above our flagship store in the North Loop neighborhood of Downtown Minneapolis. For a map of our location, click here.

WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ASKOV FINLAYSON, THE BACHELOR FARMER, AND MARVEL BAR?

Brothers Andrew and Eric Dayton founded and own all three businesses. They have also restored two neighboring historic buildings in the North Loop: one is home to Askov Finlayson and the other houses The Bachelor Farmer, The Bachelor Farmer Cafe, and Marvel Bar. We often partner with our friends next door and Askov Finlayson stocks a number of items that Marvel Bar’s bartenders and The Bachelor Farmer’s chefs and baristas find useful.
