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.
