Our Best Local Palatine Farmers Market Along with Buffalo Grove: Fresh, Locally Grown Food

  |     |   Food and Drink, Local Events, Things to Do

Summer is winding down, but there is still plenty of time to check out our local farmers markets here in Palatine and our neighbors in Buffalo Grove. Fresh, local produce is a great way to support the local community, as well as buy handcrafted goods and communicate with the people who grow and take care of our food. It feels good knowing where it all came from!

We want to highlight these awesome farmers and vendors for our residents and let them know about local happenings. Here are two of the best local markets to enjoy.
