The Glenwood Sunday Market operates an outdoor farmers’ market on Glenwood between Morse and Lunt every Sunday from June through October and an indoor market once or twice a month during the winter and spring season. All the farmers at the Market own farms within 250 miles from Chicago, sell their own produce and use sustainable growing practices.
The Market relies primarily on the generosity of local residents to support its many programs, especially theMarket for All program, which makes the fresh, locally grown produce at the Market affordable to our low income neighbors. Your support of the Glenwood Sunday Market will enable this wonderful community asset to continue to flourish.
To support our wonderful market, PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS HERE.
Barbara and I look forward to welcoming you to our home on Tuesday, April 17th!
