There’s a lot going on this weekend. Here’s a reminder of two fun events on tap:
ABC 7 to Broadcast Live from Glenwood Sunday Winter Farmers’ Market; I ♥ GSM–Champagne and Chocolate Tastings
Word about the Glenwood Sunday Market is spreading far and wide. Already voted the most popular farmers’ market in Illinois, the Market has caught the attention of ABC 7 News, which will be conducting a remote broadcast from the Market for their morning news show this Sunday, February 13th, from 8 to 9:30 a.m.! They’ll cover the Market set-up, as well as the opening minutes of the Market.
The Sunday Market itself will run from from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 6956-58 N. Glenwood, right next to The Glenwood Bar. Following on the heels of the successful farmers’ market this summer, the Glenwood Sunday Winter Market is held on the second Sunday of each month from now until May.
This week the Market will be followed by a special Valentine event,“I ♥ GSM,” a fundraiser to support the Glenwood Sunday Market.
Join us from 2 to 5 p.m. for some fun tastings. There is no admission fee for the event. Just stick around after the market to sample sparkling wines, chocolates and more. Your purchases help support the Glenwood Sunday Market. Special guests include Sweet Attila’s Bakery, Katherine Anne Confections, Grown Up Kid Stuff Chocolate Sauce, Ruth & Phils Gourmet Ice Cream, artist Lisa Dalke and Valentine’s Day crafts.
The Glenwood Sunday Winter Market specializes in locally grown (and organically grown when possible) produce and foods, and is open to everyone, as the Market provides a Market for All matching fund program for Link/SNAP guests.
I’ll see you at the Market this Sunday!
