Holiday Farmers Market Returns
About 40 vendors helped the Illinois Stewardship Alliance support our local farmers at the Holiday Farmers Market this weekend. Everything from produce to meat and cheese was available. So how do they do it? This time of year, we're told heated greenhouses are helping with the production of some of the veggies.
"It started at 9," alliance executive director Lindsay Record said. "You couldn't even walk through here, there was such a big crowd coming through. But we're so pleased that there's such a great turnout. I don't even know--we probably had at least a thousand people that have come through here today, so it's great."
The Holiday Farmers Market will be held one last time on Saturday, December 15 inside the Artisans Building at the Illinois State Fairgrounds.
