Winnetka Farmer’s Market - Back in Business!
Today was a magnificent and sunny day here in Winnetka - perfect for the reopening of the farmer’s market. Some strict rules were in place but that’s okay to get at some of the wonderful items vendors were selling.
Masks were mandatory, no one was allowed to touch the food, and buyers had to mostly stand back from the tables and point at what they wanted (based on guidelines from the Illinois Farmer’s Market Association.) Purchases could be in cash but no change was given back - but they also accepted credit cards.
Chef Bruno Abate of Tocco Restaurant had a booth showcasing authentic Italians pastas, olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and other delictibles. Most vendors were selling vegetables and fruits which looked beautiful. Others were selling cheese, pastries, breads, pesto, meats, and the freshest eggs I've ever eaten. I didn’t see anyone selling flowers or plants but they will be coming soon.
The Winnetka Farmer’s Market will be open every Saturday from 7:30 am to 12:30 pm through October 17 - rain or shine. It’s located in the parking lot behind the Village Hall.
