Glenview Farmers’ Market
Glenview New Church will host an indoor farmers’ market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., February 18, sponsored by Faith in Place, an interfaith environmental organization. The market provides small, local farm producers with an additional venue to extend their income beyond the growing season. Free and open to the public, consumers have an opportunity to purchase fresh produce, cheese, meat and poultry, soap, syrup, honey, wool, raw fibers, vinegars, dried fruits, milled flours, sauces and salsas, preserves and cider.
For the farmers, there is no fee to participate, but they donate 10 percent of what they take in at the market past a threshold amount to the Illinois Farmer Crisis Fund (FCF). Modeled after Wisconsin’s Harvest of Hope Fund, the FCF gives monetary gifts of up to $1,000 to farmers in crisis due to illness or unexpected expenses. Link cards are accepted at all Faith in Place farmers' markets.
