Join us for our FINAL 2018-2019 indoor Winter Farmers Market at Annunciation of Our Lady Episcopal Church in Gurnee open from 9:00am-1:00pm!
We will also be offering a Faithful Citizens Workshop from 11:30-12:30 adjacent to the market. We want to empower you and your house of worship to build relationships with your elected officials to show your support for policies that protect the land, water, and air that we all share. Learn the importance of advocating for climate justice as a person of faith and how you can be an effective advocate. Gain confidence in speaking to your elected officials through role-playing exercises and question and answer sessions.
Register for the workshop before it fills up!
Light refreshments will be served.
More about our Winter Farmers Market Program:
At a time of year when outdoor farmers markets are closed for the season, this market will offer attendees the opportunity to purchase items such as meat, eggs, honey, salsa, jam, bread, pastries, tea, seasonally-available produce, and more.
Illinois Link cards/SNAP benefits are accepted at the market. All Link/SNAP customers can double their Link purchases up to $25 to buy fruits and vegetables!
Each winter, from November through March, Faith in Place partners with faith communities to host a series of indoor Winter Farmers Markets on Saturdays and Sundays.
The markets provide an additional source of income for local vendors during the off-season, promote sustainable farming methods and economic justice for regional farm families, encourage healthy, wholesome eating, and support the building of relationships between producers and consumers.
Enjoy a wide range of seasonal, sustainably-produced goods and support your local farmers and vendors!
