2016 Farmer Markets in Will County, IL

2016 Farmer Markets in Will County, IL 

     I married a farm girl ... a very proud "Farmer's Daughter" ...
    Because of that fact, each year I share current info regarding all the many Farmer's Markets held throughout the growing season in Will County, IL.   

     Many residents (and visitors to Will County) love gardening ... and the "fruits" of a farmer's and gardener's labors.  The fresh vegetables, fruits, seasonings, flowers, jams, jellies, being sold at these markets are tasty, but also economical to buy and healthy to eat. 

     Also, when foods are purchased at local fresh Markets, it helps to support local farmers and keeps food dollars spent right within local communities.  Something near and dear to our family's heart.

      Below, I've listed the Will County communities hosting Markets in 2016.  I hope you have an opportunity to visit many of our local Will County Farmers Markets over the next few months ...
