Oak Park Farmers' Market
May - October, Saturdays, 7am-1pm, Pilgrim Church Parking lot at 460 Lake St., Oak Park
This market offers locally grown produce, sounds of live bluegrass music and the smell of fresh, homemade donuts in the historic Village of Oak Park. Learn more here.
Gleaning at the farm
June - October, Prairie Wind Family Farm
Gleaning is a great way to volunteer at the farm, know you’re making a difference in your community, and increase access to fresh healthy foods. Volunteers harvest produce that otherwise would not be harvested from our fields. These fresh vegetables are then delivered to a local food pantry for distribution to their clients. Learn more here.
We will continue to add events as they are planned. We also feature announcements and reminders about upcoming events in our newsletter, so please sign up to receive in your inbox. Thank you!
