Okay, it might be a little early to start planning your weekly market trip, but you can mark your calenders! Evanston has announced their 2007 farmer’s market schedule. Opening day will be on Saturday, May 19. The market will be open every Saturday throughout the summer, with the final market on Saturday, November 3. Hours of operation will be 7:30-1:00, and the market will be returning to it’s convieniant location in the parking lot at the intersection of University Place and Oak Avenue.
While you can get free parking at the adjacent Maple Avenue parking garage, I encourage everyone to use public transit as the market is situated just a few blocks from the Davis Street Purple line and Metra. And remember to bring your own canvas or recycled bags to tote home the amazing array of produce you’re sure to find!
