    Friday, June 10 | Elgin Farmers Market In Downtown Elgin

    Bringing 40+ Vendors and Live Entertainment to Downtown Elgin Every Friday Beginning June 3

    The Elgin Farmers Market will be open Friday from 3-7pm along Spring St, between E Chicago St, and Fulton Street. The market is a rain or shine event that continues until Mid-October.

    Now in its 22nd year, the market brings a wide variety of fresh, locally sourced foods and handmade goods to the heart of Downtown Elgin. Shopping the market is a wonderful opportunity to get outdoors with friends and family, meet members of the community, and support local farmers, artisan makers, and small business entrepreneurs. Every Friday beginning June 3 and running through October 14, market vendors will set-up shop along Spring Street in Downtown Elgin between Chicago Street and Fulton Street. Weekly hours will be from 3pm to 7pm, with the market open an extra hour to 8pm for First Friday on June 3, July 1, and August 5.

    This year over 40 vendors are confirmed to participate in the market including some crowd favorites from years past, and some exciting new vendors as well. Farmers Market Manager Sarah Michaels with the Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin said, “We are thrilled with the variety of vendors we have for the market this year, especially the new produce vendors. We listened to feedback from our shoppers, and they specifically requested more fresh produce. This year we’re delivering on that request with six farms participating, which is more than ever before!”

    Free parking is available throughout Downtown Elgin, within nearby parking garages along E Chicago St, Fulton Street and near Festival Park along S Grove Ave. The public should be aware that through-traffic along Spring St from Chicago St to Fulton Ave is closed during market hours, starting at 1:00pm and will reopen at 8:00pm.
