Faith in Place Winter Farmers’ Markets
Faith in Place is celebrating their tenth season of Indoor Winter Farmers’ Markets (WFM) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., January 12, at First United Methodist Church of Park Ridge; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., January 19, at First Church of Lombard UCC; and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., January 26, at St Mark’s Episcopal Church, in Glen Ellyn.
Their unique itinerant markets offer Houses of Worship an opportunity to achieve social justice goals and connect with the surrounding community by opening up their event halls to local vendors and shoppers.
To emphasize food justice, the markets accept Link/SNAP benefits and Link Match coupons from markets across Illinois through LINK Up Illinois, a program of Experimental Station. Faith in Place WFMs distribute up to $25 in matching coupons which customers can use to purchase fresh and frozen whole fruits and vegetables.
