Farmers Market Roundup – With Printable Calendar!

Visiting the local farmers market is a favorite activity for my family. Aside from all the fresh produce, most markets (like Grayslake) have activities for children and music. It’s a great way to get out and get to know your community! Market season is just getting started, so find your local market and enjoy!
