Farmers Markets and French Markets in the Western Suburbs 2018

Springtime is in full bloom, and the season for farmers markets is here! It is the perfect time of year to take advantage of all the fresh fruits and veggies at the height of their season and available to us locally. Kids always enjoy eating produce more when they have joined in on the selection process. What a fun summertime activity it is to whip up a meal together using the freshest ingredients at your local farmers market!

A nice added bonus are the free samples that local farmers tend to enthusiastically share. It is likely that you could find a farmers market near you just about every day of the week. Don’t forget your reusable bags, support your local farmers, and enjoy summer’s wholesome bounty with your loved ones!
