In addition to the provision of farm fresh produce, flowers and uniquely-crafted goods, the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market team works to create more than a market, but a community-wide event each and every Summer Friday in Lake Bluff. From live music and cooking demonstrations to our famous corn roasts and experienced “Master Gardeners” on-hand, the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market offers something for everyone!
2017 Live Music Schedule
Live music is offered at most weekly markets between approximately 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
The 2017 music schedule will be announced soon!
Story Time on the Green with the Lake Bluff Public Library
Children of all ages can join Mrs. Spezzano in the gazebo at 9:00am, for 30 minutes of fun and entertaining stories, during the Farmer’s Markets on June 9th – August 25th. Everyone is welcome. Look for the storytime sign, and wagon!
RJ Ruggles – “The Balloon Guy”
Throughout each Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market season, chefs from across Lake Bluff, Lake Forest and beyond hold live cooking demonstrations that are focused on great flavors, great recipes and the great products available at the market. Think seasonal. Think farm-to-table. These demonstrations are a favorite of market-goers and market organizers alike! The full schedule of cooking demonstrations will be available shortly.
Master Gardeners are adults of all ages who love gardening and who have previous gardening experience.
The mission of the University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener program is “Helping Others Learn to Grow.” Master Gardeners involve people in improving the quality of life by helping them find sound management practices for home and urban natural resources, by creating aesthetically pleasing environments, by promoting well-being through people-plant interactions and horticultural therapy, and by contributing to a safe, abundant food supply through home fruit and vegetable production.
Master Gardeners will be on-hand at the Lake Bluff Farmers’ Market on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month this summer.
