The Prospect Heights City Council voted this week to host its first French Market, which promises to be more eclectic than a traditional farmers market.

The operator is Bensidoun USA, known for its French Markets in several suburbs and at Chicago's Ogilvie Transportation Center.

Bensidoun managers have told Mayor Nick Helmer the market can open June 1. The expected hours are 2-7 p.m. on Wednesdays through August or mid-September at the city's Metra Station parking lot, 55 S. Wolf Road.

"It's an amenity for the community, a chance to come together with neighbors," Helmer said Monday.

The market will have to operate its first year without Bensidoun's signature red, white and blue canopies, because the company cannot obtain new ones soon enough, said Helmer.
