Heritage Prairie Farm plans winter farmer’s market every Saturday
Heritage Prairie Farm, 2N308 Brundige Road in Elburn, will bring the farmer’s market to the farm from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday all winter long.
This winter, the market, located just west of Geneva and St. Charles, is expanding to include two indoor heated spaces to make room for more than a dozen local vendors.
The market features a wide range of products including vegetables grown on the farm, local eggs and dairy, artisan cheeses and meats, along with many handmade items sold by those who produce them.
“What many people don’t realize is that not only can we grow and harvest vegetables throughout winter, the winter harvest includes the highest quality vegetables available in our region,” Nate Sumner, farm manager, said in a news release. “Fall and winter produce has more nutrients and better flavor than the same crop grown in the summer.”
Heritage Prairie Farm is a leader in the local food community and has served the Chicagoland area for more than five years. Their vegetables, grown using organic principles, are supplied to many of the area’s top restaurants as well as their own farm-to-table events and weddings.
Vendors interested in participating in the market can contact Katie, the farm store manager, at 630-443-8253 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
