Produce you can expect

Here is a Chicago Area Harvest Calendar guide letting you know what types of fruits & vegetables grow at which times.

You may ask how precise are the calendars?

Well, they are as precise as the weather! Which means, they can vary by 1 to 2 weeks.

Expect to find…

Asparagus • Beets • Blackberries • Blueberries • Broccoli • Cabbage • Cherries • Collards • Green Peas • Lettuce • Mushrooms • Peaches • Radishes • Raspberries • Snap Beans • Spinach • Strawberries • Summer Squash • Turnips & Turnip Greens

Dog Owners

If you bring dogs to The Elmhurst Farmers’ Market, some rules you might be expected to follow include:

  • Dogs must be under control on a short leash (maximum 3-foot leash) and by the owner’s side always.
  • Dogs need to be kept away from produce, plants, and food products.
    Dogs need to be courteous and able to socialize with people and other dogs.
  • Follow your city’s laws regarding pets, which could include a leash law, cleanup of droppings, current tags, and a current rabies certificate.
  • Bring doggy cleanup bags or use any provided bags.
  • Be understanding. Not everyone loves dogs, and some fear dogs.

We want everyone to feel invited and welcomed at the market. So it really comes down to being courteous and respectful of others,  Some people love dogs, and other people don’t. Take your cues from those around you as to whether they’re comfortable being around your dog. And always thank you for making our market a success.

today is our last Wednesday market for this season - since the first Wednesday in June through today, Mother Nature has been kind both for the dry sunny days, and the bountiful harvest brought each week by our vendors - so we add a message with two simple words for you, our market visitors - Thank You for enthusiastically coming out each week and finding something fresh for your table (and remember our Saturday winter market begins November 5th) ...

well, it might not be as nice as a June Wednesday, but then again it is mid-October and so far this season the weather has been very good - so, today adding a raincoat and a hat/umbrella may make some sense - what also will work today is a place to find that perfect decoration for the Halloween season, plus a wide variety of fresh produce and fruits from the fall harvest - market opens at 7am until 1pm - BTW, we encourage you to post pictures of where you bring your decorations, and how they look at your home - finally, have a nice day no matter the weather! ...
