Rolling Meadows' "Farmers & Food Trucks" will return for a second season next year, giving shoppers cause to hope that a familiar "farmer" will be back his homegrown produce.

Besides serving as the city's 5th Ward alderman, Robert Banger Jr. is known around city hall for the yummy fruit and vegetables he grows right at his home in Rolling Meadows. And while he does hail from Iowa, "farming" is a hobby, not really a business for Banger.

The farmers market, spiced with the addition of food trucks, will return next spring, taking place the fourth Saturday of each month, May through September, in the parking lot of City Hall, 3600 Kirchoff Road.

City Manager Barry Krumstok said in the city's newsletter that the number of vendors will grow with produce and crafts, and of course, food trucks selling items ranging from baked goods to Mexican specialties, and maybe even something for your canine friends.

Zach Creer, assistant to the city manager, said anyone who wants to participate should fill out a form on the city's website, www.cityrm.org.

"Building successful relationships with vendors and their customers over the course of the year helps drive demand for this type of community event," Creer said in the newsletter. "We have already started our efforts to invite new vendors to participate, many of whom have expressed strong interest in what we have to offer."

Residents who want to help can contact Creer at creerz@cityrm.org or (847) 394-8500.
