The Evanston Farmer & Artisan Food Market returns this winter to the Evanston Ecology Center at 2024 McCormick Blvd. The market will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. every Saturday from December 1, 2012 through April 27, 2013. The Ecology Center is located in the Ladd Arboretum, with convenient free parking just across Bridge Street and in the surrounding residential streets.
This market extends the farmers' selling season for local fresh produce and gives them an opportunity to add value to their produce by making and selling sauces, pickling products, soups and salsas. The market also provides local food artisans with a place to sell their products.
It is anticipated that fresh produce will include root vegetables, spinach, kales, broccoli, kohlrabi, cauliflower and herbs. Lettuces will be available as indoor growing conditions allow. The market will also sell pork, beef, chicken, eggs, lamb and goat that are natural free range meats, as well as frozen blueberries, apple cider and fruit preserves. Locally-produced cheese, artisan breads, honey, pastries, coffee and ice cream will also be sold, with goat milk soaps and organic herb teas rounding out the selection.
New this year! Some prepared foods will be sold, including crepes, tamales and other savory dishes. Finally, don’t forget to bring your knives to be sharpened. For more info., please call 847/864-7238.
