glenview farmers market


Saturdays, June 17-October 21, 2023 • 8 am-12 pm


Historic Wagner Farm 1510 Wagner Road, Glenview, IL 60025



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.

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, coffee, chocolates, French pastries, smoked fish, herbs and spices, honey and empanadas.



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.

The Green Table is back at the Glenview Farmers Market this summer to dialogue with residents about topics like sustainability, recycling and protecting the environment. The Green Table, cosponsored by the Village of Glenview and the Glenview Park District, runs from 9 a.m. to noon
