Also expected are Lake Zurich Mayor Tom Poynton, village board trustees, municipal employees and other local leaders. The market will run every Friday, rain or shine, from 3-7 p.m. through Sept. 26.

This year, the market will host 25 vendors, five of which will offer organic produce. In addition, each week will feature a rotating schedule of musical acts, children's activities, community service organizations selling beverages and a booth with a weekly rotation of artists and craftspeople.

Organic and sustainable growing practices are encouraged by local farmers and vendors. All vegetable farmers participating in the Lake Zurich market are within 200 miles of the village and practice organic farming.

In addition to locally grown produce, market vendors will sell freshly baked goods, fruit, meat, eggs, salsas, sauces, oils, cheese, organic soaps and cleaners, fresh lemonade and local honey, as well as food. Market visitors can also receive assistance and learn about upcoming events and offerings in Lake Zurich.

Other offerings include various community and civic interest programs such as crafts, gardening, pet rescue, fire truck visits and special programs presented by the Ela Area Public Library. Young market-goers will be able to register for an educational program.

Volunteers organized the new market last year. In addition, the village stayed local when it sponsored a contest that solicited farmers market logo designs from Lake Zurich High School students.
