Our mission is to support local farmers, producers and artisans by providing an economic outlet, and to serve the greater Northbrook area by making available for purchase fresh, high-quality produce and other locally made goods for the benefit of all.
Our goal is to educate residents on the benefits of buying locally, eating healthy, and living green, as well as supporting local farming families and entrepreneurs.
Customer Appreciation Day Huge Success About two thousand of our good friends joined us for Customer Appreciation Day Aug. 7, when we said "Thank You!" to all who support the farmers market.
Scheduled in conjunction with National Farmers Market Week, it was a great opportunity to demonstrate how much we value our customers. The nonprofit, all volunteer Northbrook Farmers Market is one of more than 8,600 markets across the country that also celebrated the value farmers markets bring to their communities. Folks brought nearly 1 ton of paper for free shredding provided by Northbrook-based, industry-certified Opportunity Secure Data Destruction (OSDD).
We enjoyed free music and served free lemonade and popcorn at the Welcome Booth. And children of all ages had fun with free face painting.
One lucky person won a basket of market goodies valued at more than $75--all items donated by our vendors.
Thanks to our volunteer Onion Heads and local Girl Scouts who gave of their time and efforts to make the event possible.
