glenview farmers market

Join us each Saturday from June through October to shop for the best locally-grown produce and seasonal fresh foods our region has to offer.

The Glenview Farmers Market builds a sustainable, intelligent, dynamic, and ethical food system with local farms at its core. It is our mission to ensure that all residents of Glenview and the surrounding areas have access to the freshest, healthiest local food in a fun environment the entire family can enjoy.

Grown within 200 miles of Glenview, our local vendors sell seasonal produce, as well as meat, eggs, cheese, bread, pastries, fresh cut flowers, honey and empanadas.

Located at Historic Wagner Farm, Glenview Farmers Market provides a wonderful opportunity to combine healthy food shopping with a visit to a working early 20th-century farm. The Heritage Center, the farm grounds and restrooms open at 10 am. Stop by the farm to check out our new Agriculture Adventure Playscape and Sensory Gardens.

 

Parking

Free parking is available in the Saints Peter & Paul Greek Orthodox Church and Historic Wagner Farm lots. There is absolutely no parking on Wagner Road. Please cross the street at the crosswalk for utmost safety. Wagons will be available for you to use at the market and to take your purchases back to your vehicle in the parking lot. There will be designated spots in the parking lot to return the wagons. Volunteers will come and collect them periodically. You can also take any available wagon from the parking lot and bring it over to the market to use.

 

Our COVID Safety Protocols

Masks will NOT be required at the market. Hand sanitizing stations will be available. Patrons will be asked to allow the vendors to pick up the produce and bag it rather than touching it themselves. Social distancing is recommended while waiting in line and moving through the market.

Please note: For the 2021 Market Season there will be no Green Table, Community Booth or weekly entertainment.

learn more about the Glenview Farmers Market

The Glenview Farmers’ Market was started in 1988 by the Glenview Women of Today as a way of providing the community with healthy and fun food options. Every Saturday, farmers, flower growers, and residents would gather at Jackman Park to enjoy the fresh air and support local businesses. In 2007, the Glenview Park District began to manage the weekly shopping event. Since the most natural place to hold a farmer’s market is at a farm, the Park District moved its food marketplace to Historic Wagner Farm.

Our vendors are very supportive of the Northfield Township Food Pantry, making weekly donations of their fresh produce.
