“Beers ‘N’ Brats” and Corn Roast Events Connect Community, Great Products
LAKE BLUFF (July 23, 2014) – The Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market is committed to creating an inviting, community-oriented space while providing local residents with access to farm-fresh goods, unique products and more. Working to combine those two missions, the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market team today announced the dates for two of its most popular annual events – the Corn Roast and “Beers ‘n’ Brats”.
Scheduled for the Friday, August 1 Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market, the annual Corn Roast will again feature complimentary roasted corn for the assembled crowd. In addition to offering Lake Bluff residents with an expertly prepared taste of Illinois’ most popular crop, but it also provides the crowd a great experience for all the senses. In 2014, the Friends of the Lake Bluff Park District will sponsor the event and run the corn roaster. Corn will be offered from three market vendors including Didier Farms, Red Barn Farm and Twin Gardens Farm. Corn will be ready for sampling between 9:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
In addition to the Corn Roast, the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market – together with two popular Lake Bluff businesses – will present a special “Beers ‘N’ Brats” event to highlight this iconic pairing and the businesses offering it right here in Lake Bluff. The Daily Grind and Lake Bluff Brewing Company will provide the Beers ‘N’ Brats event at the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market on Friday, August 8 at 10:30 a.m. This event is also offered to market guests free of charge.
“Our Corn Roast and Beers ‘N’ Brats events are two of the most exciting Fridays for the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market,” said Gridley Swanton, market manager for the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market. “There’s nothing better in the summer than great BBQ, refreshing beverages and fresh Midwest corn. These events help bring those favorites to Lake Bluff residents in an elevated and approachable way.”
“Together with music from local musicians, story time with the Lake Bluff Library, Master Gardeners, these events help support a key aspect of our mission – celebrating what makes Lake Bluff one of Chicago’s greatest suburbs,” Swanton continued. “Working together with farmers, vendors, local businesses, we are proud to contribute back to the Village’s reputation.”
In the most recent issue of North Shore Weekend, our Market Lady – Gridley Swanton – was featured for her work to keep the market running smoothly week after week. This is a great feature on what the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market is all about – farm fresh produce, local goods and a community vibe! Thanks for the coverage. You can read the full story here.
