With fall right around the corner, a changing variety of produce can be found at the Oak Park Farmers’ Market. Plums, nectarines, peaches, pears, grapes, apples and cider are just some of the seasonal favorites now available along with meats, eggs, honey, cheese and milk from the more than two dozen regular Market vendors.
Throughout September the Market will continue to welcome guest vendors offering charcuterie and meats, hot sauces and jams, heirloom grains and microgreens. Special events this month include a children’s activity hosted by Wonder Works Children’s Museum on Sept. 9 and an appearance by the Oak Park Library’s Book Bike on Sept. 23.
Now in its 42nd season, the Oak Park Farmers’ Market is open from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through October in the Pilgrim Church parking lot, 460 Lake St. Most vendors accept credit cards. All vendors accept LINK cards, and LINK cardholders can double the value of their purchase up to $25 thanks to the Double Value Coupon Program. Most vendors also accept WIC and senior coupons.
