The Oak Park Farmers’ Market returns for its 46th season on Sat., May 22, back in its regular location in the Pilgrim Church parking lot at 460 Lake St., one block west of Ridgeland Avenue.
Patrons will be required to enter on foot through a designated entrance on Lake Street and mandatory COVID-19 safety measures will be in place, including face coverings and proper social distancing.
Market officials say they will follow the latest public health guidance related to outdoor gatherings, which includes limiting the number of patrons allowed within the sales area at one time and one-way travel among the farmers’ stands.
The Farmers' Market's on-site pickup program that was in effect last year will not be available during the 2021 season.
However, customers interested in ordering onlineare encouraged to visit www.sourcewhatsgood.com to arrange to have farm-fresh products from participating farmers delivered directly to their home.
Donuts may be available via the app as well, but definitely will be for in-person purchases at a stand at the Market.
Payment and parking
All payment methods, including cash, will be accepted in-person at the Market, and matching coupons worth up to $25 will be offered to SNAP shoppers.
Free parking will be available in the Oak Park River Forest High School parking garage on Scoville Avenue, just north of Lake Street. The parking garage offers dedicated parking for persons with disabilities.
General customer parking on Lake Street will be restricted, but limited parking for persons with disabilities will be available near the entrance. Nearby streets also offer parking during Market hours.
