Singer/songwriter Frank Liston from Elgin will play this Friday, July 2, at the Elgin Farmers Market from 3-7pm.
Frank plays hours of soulful acoustic renditions of popular favorites from all eras and genres of music along with his originals. His style intersects folk, blues, and R’n’B and can be heard on his debut solo album, Renovare, released in 2017.
The Elgin Farmers Market is open Fridays 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.
Presented by AMITA Health, the Elgin Farmers Market strives to increase the public’s accessibility to fresh local foods, unique artwork, and collaborative programming with local artists and community partners. Individuals under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Illinois’ SNAP program, formerly known as “food stamps”) are eligible to receive an additional $20 at the market when they use their Illinois EBT LINK card thanks to the Link Match Program. The program is sponsored by the Elgin branch of BMO Harris Bank, and is made possible by LINK UP Illinois.
Many of last year’s vendors will be returning and will continue to offer fresh products, including: fruits, vegetables, fresh eggs, fish, and meat, honey, nuts, olives and more. Other items and services will also be available, including handmade artisan goods, CBD products, knife sharpening, topiaries, as well as body care items.
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. (If you park on the nearby streets, be mindful of posted time limits for parking (30 minute spots, 2 hour, etc). Also, please do not park in the spaces marked off for “Curbside Pickup”, our local restaurants thank you in advance.)
