The September Farmers Markets will also feature sustainably raised local meat from two Prairie Crossing farms: Yaw-Ye Farms and Midnight Sun Organics. These farms are part of the Farm Business Development Center, a program that supports the development of successful family farm enterprises by focusing on the production and marketing of organic foods for local and regional food systems.

On Sept. 21, Yaw-Ye Farms will sell half and whole pork CSA shares. Pigs are raised outdoors on free-range pasture, local grains, and vegetable gleanings from other Prairie Crossing farms. Further details will be available at the market.

On Sept. 28, Midnight Sun Organics will sell sustainably raised turkey at the market. Midnight Sun will provide details about their turkeys and take pre-orders and prepayment. Turkeys will be ready just in time for your Thanksgiving feast.

Come meet the Grayslake farmers producing your food at the Prairie Crossing Farmers Market. Stock up on late summer produce, and place orders for locally raised meat.
