The Naperville Park District is bringing back two events that were new in 2018: the 95th Street Farmers Market, opening Thursday, June 6 and A Night at the Movies, beginning Friday, June 7.
After a successful first season in 2018, Naperville Park District and the 95th Street Library are partnering again to host the 95th Street Farmers Market, presented by FBC Remodel. The Market will be held on Thursdays from 3:00-7:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the 95th Street Library, located at 3015 Cedar Glade Drive in Naperville. The Market opens June 6 and continues through September 26. Please note that the Market will not be held on Thursday, July 4.
In addition to locally grown fruits and vegetables, other food items for sale include baked goods, olive oil, sauces, guacamole, pecans, organic meat, eggs, jam, honey and snacks. Nonfood items include flowers, plants, dishes, signs, pillows, soap, skincare products, candles and cutting boards.
“We are pleased to welcome new vendors and delighted that many of our 2018 vendors are returning,” said Andrea Coates, superintendent of recreation for the Park District. “Each business offers something unique and the vendors are more than happy to answer questions and explain more about their products.”
