Farmers Markets in the Southwest Suburbs 2018

The season for fresh produce is finally here! There’s nothing like preparing a meal using fresh fruits and vegetables! And you don’t have to go far to get what you need. Farmers markets are the perfect way to get the kids out into the sun and to get them interested in choosing ingredients for a healthy meal! Aside from the farm grown produce, many farmers markets have homemade baked goods, meats, cheeses, and honey. Many also have craft booths, face painting, games, and other fun activities for the kids. Grab your grocery tote and some cash and make visits to the farmers market a new summer tradition for the whole family!

About the Author

Claudia Coyne
Having grown up in Palos Park, Claudia has a great love for the southwest suburbs and the hidden gems of the area. Claudia currently lives in Tinley Park with her husband and four children (two girls, ages 6 and 4 and two boys, ages 3 and 1). Cabin fever with four children can get rough, so they’re always looking for new and exciting adventures outside of the house! During the warmer months, you’ll find her and the family at the pool, out on nature walks, grilling in the yard, or at the zoo. And pick a park, any park… Claudia’s kids possess a magical super power of being able to detect the nearest park within a 5 mile radius, so there’s always a stop off on the way home to discover new playgrounds! When the cold comes, they like to craft, hibernate at the library or indoor play places, and play in the snow. In her tiny sliver of free time, Claudia enjoys sewing, photography, and baking.
