Mount Prospect Marché Francais -- A Farmers Market with a French Twist will feature French linens, vintage furniture, paintings, stained glass, crafts, French-inspired crepes and much more.
Also, a special family story time is provided by the Mount Prospect Public Library at 10 a.m. At the Language Stars' booth, children can learn French words in a fun way.
French flags and decorations adorn the entrance. There will be musicians creating a warm, festive ambience. Enjoy a crepe and coffee at one of the many cafe tables provided by Retro Bistro.
The Marché Francais is sponsored by the Mount Prospect Sister Cities Commission as a way to promote French culture and the Sister City connection that Mount Prospect has with Sèvres, France.
At the Sister Cities' booth, children can pick up fun stickers and adults can choose from an array of original, handmade gift items. And the adjacent Lions Club Farmers Market will feature a variety of fruits, vegetables, crafts and more.
The event will take place rain or shine.
