Answer to Main Street Calumet Market April Riddle Contest

CALUMET -- There were no winners of April’s Main Street Calumet Market Riddle Contest, but a tip of the hat to all the kids and their parents who came to last Saturday’s market and gave it a try. Keep an eye on local media sources, including Keweenaw Now and, for May’s riddle.

The Main Street Calumet Market is held every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the first Friday of each month from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 200 Fifth Street in downtown Calumet, Michigan (corner of Fifth and Portland Streets). The market features local products, crafts and seasonal produce. The riddle and its solution follows:

In marble walls as white as milk,
Lined with a skin as soft as silk;
Within a fountain crystal clear,
A golden apple doth appear.
No doors there are to this stronghold.
Yet things break in and steal the gold.

Solution: The same as for the much better known riddle Humpty Dumpty -- an egg.
