The market has a festive atmosphere and is a real crowd-pleaser! As many as 58 vendors sell a wide variety of goods each week, including fruits, vegetables, meat, flowers, cheese, eggs and bakery items. LINK cards are accepted. Please note that dogs are not allowed at the market (with an exception for service animals).
Parking is free in the adjacent 1800 Maple Avenue Self Park Garage with ticket validation at the City of Evanston tent.
LINK is the name of the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) system used in Illinois to distribute food and cash assistance benefits authorized under several federal and state programs, including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps.
There's so much to do at the Market. Don't miss a Saturday! The Friends of Evanston Farmer's Market offers a wide range of exciting tent activities that will be posted soon.
