Exciting Changes for the 2018 Elgin Farmers Market
We’re sprouting up great things with a new location, new day, new time and new vendors! The Elgin Farmers Market (formerly known at the Harvest Market) will now be held on Grove Avenue near DuPage Court every Friday from 3pm to 7pm beginning June 1st and running through October 5th. The DNA staff and our Farmers Market Committee have been busy behind the scenes this winter making strategic decisions to enhance the market while taking into consideration comments we’ve received from both our customers and vendors.
First Friday Farmers Market
First Friday in Downtown Elgin promises to be outstanding this year! New for 2018, Side Street Studio Arts is taking the lead on First Friday happenings with the support of a grant from the Elgin Cultural Arts Commission and in partnership with the Downtown Neighborhood Association as well as Explore Elgin Area. The DNA is dedicated to enhancing First Friday under the leadership of Side Street Studio Arts to increase foot traffic for retail, restaurants, local artists and the other resources downtown Elgin has to offer, to initiate a positive economic impact on the area and to highlight Downtown Elgin as a monthly destination for community gathering.
