Who We Are
Welcome to the Morton Grove Farmers’ Market! We are a volunteer organization that seeks to provide a wide variety of fresh, locally-produced foods and products to Morton Grove and its neighboring communities. In addition to ensuring efficient operation of the Morton Grove Farmers’ Market, the organization seeks to educate the public about the nutritional, economic, environmental, and social implications of eating seasonally and locally.
The Market is a division of the Morton Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry with cooperation from the Village of Morton Grove and many other for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. We are preparing for our third season, but we are continually publicizing the Market, booking local entertainers and community groups, vetting vendors, recruiting sponsors, and working with several groups to develop logistics to run a smooth, enjoyable marketplace. The new location of the Market is 6210 Dempster St. in Morton Grove.
In 2011, the Farmers’ Market Coalition named the Morton Grove Farmers’ Market one of the best new community markets in the country. We were also featured in news articles around the area from the Chicago Tribune and Niles-Morton Grove Patch to our own Morton Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s newsletter. The Market sends updated information to over 1,000 shoppers in the area every week via e-mail and our Facebook page has over 500 people who follow us regularly. This outreach continues to grow throughout the year.
