The market provides an opportunity to meet farmers, learn about their products, and find great foodstuffs, as well as experience educational program offerings including chef demos, information about healthy eating and environmental issues, and much more.
The Northbrook Farmers Market mission is to provide local farmers (defined as within a 150-mile radius), producers, and artisans with an economic outlet, and to serve the Northbrook area by making available for purchase fresh, high-quality produce and other locally produced goods for the benefit of all.
As such, our goal is to educate residents on the importance of buying local, eating healthy, and living green, as well as providing a fun, pleasant community gathering place throughout the summer. The Northbrook Farmers Market accepts SNAP benefits and doubles the value up to $25 per day per family.
