The Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin invites local children's organizations to sign up for a free mini-field trip day at the Downtown Elgin Harvest Market this summer.

This nine-week program will be offered at the market from noon to 2 p.m. Thursdays, June 13 to Aug. 15 (excluding July 4).

Market patrons can also have their children participate in these sessions for free with no RSVP required.
