2021 Chicagoland Farmers Markets


Farmers Market Season has begun and is thriving! This will definitely be a different experience than you are used to but so are grocery stores and lots of other experiences!

Make sure to get the full requirements from each farmers market you want to attend, but the guidelines are mostly the same throughout all of them.

Wear a mask, limit the members of the household in attendance, no pets, etc. The Illinois Farmers Market Association outlines all of the guidelines.
