miss the last few opportunities to attend the Skokie Farmers’ Market on Sundays
Come see what autumn brings to the Farmers’ Market. You will not be able to resist delicious apples including the coveted honey crisp and ginger gold varieties. The season also offers squash, brussel sprouts, various lettuces, mushrooms, eggplant, potatoes and much more.
The Skokie Farmers’ market is conveniently located in the Village Hall parking lot, 5127 Oakton. Hours are 7:30 a.m. until 12:45 p.m.
During the last market day of the season on Sunday, October 27, members of the Consumer Affairs Commission will hand out a free trick-or-treat bag, with a treat to children who attend in costume. Children are invited to trick-or-treat at each vendor stand from 8 a.m. to noon, participate in a Guess the Pumpkin’s Weight contest and raffle. The Commission also is accepting donations of non-perishable food items to benefit the Niles Township Food Pantry will be collected at the Consumer Affairs Commission table in the Market on this day. Glass jars and perishable items are not accepted.
The Skokie Consumer Affairs Commission, a volunteer commission, hosts the Skokie Farmers’ Market. For more information on the Skokie Farmers’ Market, contact Terry Oline, Market Manager at 847/933-8224 or visit www.skokie.org.
