Farmers' Market Accepting Applications for Season
First event of the 2012 season will be held on May 12.
The Morton Grove Farmers’ Market is happy to announce that its new partnership with the Morton Grove Park District has officially been approved by the Park District Board at last Thursday night’s board meeting.
Effective May 12, 2012, the Morton Grove Park District will host the Morton Grove Farmers' Market at the newly acquired site at 6210 Dempster Street, between Harrer Pool and the American Legion Civic Center. The Morton Grove Farmers’ Market maintains its relationship with the Morton Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Read more about this exciting new location in our October 2011 announcement.
The first Morton Grove Farmers’ Market event at the 6210 Dempster site will be an outdoor Spring Market on Saturday, May 12 (Mother’s Day Weekend) from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. The new Farmers’ Market location features ample parking along with easy access by foot or bicycle. MB Bank has generously offered Market patrons use of their south parking lot. For your safety, please cross Dempster at the traffic light at Fernald. The friendly and dedicated EMA volunteers will be on hand to ensure everyone’s safety.
The regular market season will take place every Saturday morning between June 2 and October 13 from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. We have several festivals planned during the spring, summer and fall.
The market managers are now accepting applications from local vendors for the 2012 Spring Market and the 2012 Season. The Morton Grove Farmers’ Market strives to be a local, producer only Market. All items must be homegrown, handmade, and/or vendor-created from locally-owned operations. Fruits, vegetables and flowers need to be grown within the approximate range of 150 miles of Morton Grove.
Volunteers make this wonderful community market possible. If you are interested in helping out on Saturday mornings or joining our committee, let us know!
