The Illinois Department of Agriculture is challenging residents to devote a small portion of their food budget to Illinois-made products. Take the $10 Illinois Product Pledge at www.agr.state.il.us/marketing/ilprod.
The Sugar Grove Farmer's Market invites you to spend that $10 weekly at our market, which is held from 8 a.m. to noon every Saturday in the parking lot of the village of Sugar Grove, at 10 Municipal Drive, Route 30. We are a rain or shine market and we welcome residents from Sugar Grove and our surrounding communities.
Sugar Grove, you especially told us you wanted more vendors and we had 17 recently. We have cheese, eggs, meat, veggies, fruit, native plants, gourmet doggy treats, fresh ground coffee, honey, bread, pastries, cupcakes, and so much more.
But the vendors need you to participate if you want them to come back weekly. Show them that Sugar Grove and our surrounding communities want a local farmers market by making it viable.
Our farmers market serves as integral links between urban, suburban, and rural communities, affording farmers and their consumers the opportunity to interact.
The popularity of farmers markets continues to rise, as more and more consumers discover the joys of shopping for unique ingredients sold direct from the farm, and the pleasure of buying familiar products in their freshest possible state.
