Learn about sustainability from local vendors at Oak Park’s Go Green Days, May 18 and 25


The Oak Park Farmers’ Market has programmed two special Go Green Days to kick off the season on May 18 and 25!

Organizations and businesses that contribute to the greening of Oak Park will be on hand during the first two Saturdays of the 2019 Farmers’ Market. Learn about various environmental initiatives and discuss local sustainability efforts with members of the Village’s Environment & Energy Commission. Other organizations slated to be on hand include West Cook Wild Ones, Sun Run Solar, Deep Roots Project, Cook County Forest Preserve and FFA. Home to Roost will be there both days, so bring your chicken-related questions and check out my new booth!

  • Childrens’ activity: Seed potting
  • Bake sale: Girl Scout Troop 40879
  • Alternating vendor: Sitka Salmon Shares
The farmers’ market is held every Saturday from opening day through October in the Pilgrim Congregational Church parking lot at 460 Lake Street.
