Event Season

On April 23rd, Event season officially began for us at the Frankfort Farmers Market. Were adding on a few more events every weekend for 2023 starting the first weekend of June! 🗓️

Also, we will be working on getting more pop ups at the store on Fridays that will benefit the community, thinking fresh locally grown foods would be pretty cool? Stay tuned. 🤞

On June 3rd, we reenter the Naperville Farmers Market. It will take place every Saturday until November. The market runs at 7am-12pmOn June 4th, we will reenter the Plainfield Farmers Market every Sunday. This market runs from 11am-3pm.

We will continue to be working the Frankfort market all year, Cait and I will be dividing and conquering on Sundays to get to everywhere we need to be. We may be getting the help of a few smiling faces as well!

See you at the Markets! ✌️
