The Downtown Evanston Market is open for the season!
Fall Festival at the Downtown Evanston Farmers' Market will be from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Oct. 26 at the southwest corner of the market (by the café). All children are welcome to attend the craft activities, get a tattoo and treat bag, and decorate and take home their own pumpkin. We encourage everyone to come to the market in costume. Guess the weights of our special Market pumpkins, Jack and Jill. Winners will take them home!
There are several Farmers' Markets in operation in Evanston. If you're interested in supporting the markets, visit Friends of Evanston Markets
