One of the challenges we have found is the timing of the garden. It always seems the sweet corn is ready one week after the market, the beets are ready three weeks before the next market. So we are teaming up with PrairiErth Farm, Atlanta, IL to bring a larger variety of fresh, organic, fruits and veggies to the market.
We are working hard to find all the best that Illinois has to offer. Every market we introduce new Illinois products. We look for handcrafted, small locally owned farms and companies. We strive to bring flavorful, interesting, and fun products to the market. This month we have found Gindo ‘s award winning hot sauces handcrafted by Mary and Chris, a husband and wife team from Batavia, IL.
We went on a search for handcrafted, family owned sausage recipes and found Whistling Hen Farms, Bellflower, IL. We are excited to offer their unique sausages to the market. You can choose from Sweet and Sassy Sage, Mama’s Hot Italian, Hot Breakfast Sausage, or A Hint of Maple.
