Join Little Lake County for Kids’ Day, July 11, from 3-7 p.m. at the Mundelein Farmers Market. The Market is located at the new Village Hall, 300 Plaza Circle in downtown Mundelein, enter off Hammond Ave, one block south of Hawley and Seymour.
Kids who shop for food with their parents while also understanding where food actually comes from are more likely to make healthier choices. A family trip to the Farmers Market isn’t just fun; it’s an investment in their nutritional future! Just think how proud you’ll be when your child can correctly differentiate between Red Russian Kale and Lacinato Kale.
While filling your shopping basket with beautiful, locally-grown produce, your kids can enjoy face painting, balloons, and a visit from the Mundelein Fire Truck. Little Lake County and Lake County 4-H will offer free fun activities and crafts for all kids. Over 20 vendors will offer just-picked fruits and vegetables, fresh-baked bread, pastries, doughnuts, meats, cheeses, and eggs.
There will be plenty of snacks, including TonyDogs!, Smokey’s BBQ, Tasty Vending Kettle Corn, and Bonique Belgian Waffles. Swirl Café will offer iced coffee drinks, smoothies, and sticky buns. And, Pretty Posies will have fairy dust and flower crowns for kids.
While you’re there, don’t forget to snap a pic of your farmer’s market haul and share it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #EatLocalLLC. Spread the love!
