2015 Will County, IL Farmers Markets

2015 Will County, IL Farmers Markets

     I married a farm girl.  And you might take the girl off the farm ... but you don't take the farm out of the girl!   

     Many people share my wife's love of gardening ... and the "fruits" of a farmers and gardener's labors.  Fresh vegetables, fruits, seasonings, flowers, jams, jellies, more!  

     When purchased at a local Farmers Market, all are a great way of feeding yourself and your family fresh healthy foods, saving money, supporting local farmers, and keeping your expenditures local.

     In Will County where I live, many of the towns host Farmers Markets during the growing seasons each year.  So, I did a little bit of research and gathered info and directions to some of our County's best markets.  I've listed them below for your enjoyment and convenience.  

     I hope you have an opportunity to visit many of our local Will County Farmers Markets over the next few months ...
