Event Description:
We welcome you to the 2023 season of the La Grange Farmers Market!

The outdoor market will run rain or shine every Thursday 7 am - 1 pm May 11th through October 26th and will feature 30 local and regional small batch vendors. It's located on Harris Avenue between La Grange Road and Sixth Avenue. Convenient free parking is available nearby.

The market will provide fruits, vegetables, flowers, breads and other items. Our juicy produce is picked the day before you buy it, when it's ripe and ready to eat. These family farmers, from Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana and Illinois, work hard to provide you with fresh food that ripens in the soil instead of in supermarket bins. Returning vendors are: Aimie's European Bakery; Aracely's Bakery; Boyce Chiropractic; The Cheese People; The Daly Bagel; The Eating Well; Elena's Cucina; For You Honey Co; Gandi the Juice Guru; Gigawatt Coffee Roasters; Go Green La Grange; Island Soapies; Jake's Country Meats; JW Morlock and Girls; Katich Breads; Kernel Dan's Kettle Corn; La Grange Public Library; Lil Mad Cafe Gourmet Shop; Marek's Authentic Polish Food; Miracle Microgreens Farm; My Donut Lady; Olivaceto; Skibbe Farms; A Taste of Martha's Kitchen; Taqueria Mi Taquito; Tidey Farms; Umland's Crunchy Cheese Bites; UChicagoMedicine AdventHealth La Grange. New vendors: Get Sharp, Maggie's Munchies Dog Treats and River Valley Ranch.

The Farmers Market is brought to you by the members of the La Grange Business Association: the local and family-owned businesses that make La Grange a special place. Presenting sponsors are First Congregational Church of La Grange, Kathy Dierkes State Farm and prasino. It has been named one of the favorites in the area by West Suburban Living magazine.

Go Green La Grange, a local environmental organization, will be at the market each week to provide information on composting, rain barrels and other green initiatives.
