You know it’s finally summer when the coats have moved to the back of the closet and market season is a short three days away. Now entering its 42nd year, the Oak Park Farmers’ Market will open for business this Saturday, May 20 beginning at 7 a.m. in the Pilgrim Congregational Church parking lot, 460 Lake St.
Items for sale include locally grown produce, flowers, bedding plants, honey, cheese, frozen meat, bread, and doughnuts from local vendors. Cash is the preferred method of payment, but credit and debit are available depending on the booth.
The market will be open to the public each Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. through October, according to the Village. There will also be live bluegrass music to provide entertainment each week.
The market has a few rules, including no bicycles, pets, smoking, or soliciting allowed on the grounds.
The Village recommends parking on the nearby streets during market hours, or by using the parking garage at OPRF High School, which is free until 1 p.m. on market days.
