The COVID-19 outbreak has put the Farmers Market on hold, and we will not be opening in May. We are following updates from the Illinois Department of Public Health and hope to open later in the summer. Please check back for details on our 2020 season.
The 2020 Farmers Market Season was scheduled to open Sunday, May 3, 2020, but has been delayed. While we shelter in place, C&D Family Farms is taking online orders for home delivery! They are offering their own products, as well as bread, jams, honey and other wares from our Farmers Market vendors.

Thank You to our Sponsors

Southtown Health Foods sponsors our children’s activities for the 2020 season. Their generous donation will allow us to bring back some of our favorites from last year for the kids including Erin’s Farm, an appearance from Southpaw, craft activities and much more!
The 19th Ward Youth Foundation, Illinois State Senator Bill Cunningham, and State Representative Fran Hurley graciously fund our face painter for the season. We plan to offer face painting in the children’s tent every other week from 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
We are also indebted to our market sponsors including the 95th Street Business Association, the Chicago Public Library Beverly branch, Marvelous Faces face painting, Pacor Mortgage Corporation, the Beverly Area Planning Association, and Alderman Matt O’Shea. We are especially grateful to BAPA for their assistance in spreading the word about the market and to Alderman O’Shea for helping us keep the market lot in the best shape possible. We are also grateful to the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences and their principal, Bill Hook, for assistance with building new barricades for our use at the market.
