Oak Park Farmers Market
The Oak Park Farmers' Market offers high quality, locally grown produce in the friendly, historic Village of Oak Park. The Market is a step back into simpler times . . . buying things from the farmers who grow them, surrounded by the sounds of live bluegrass music, the smell of freshly made donuts and the profusion and variety of nature's bounty.

This is honestly one of my favorite parts of living in the burbs! It's a highlight of my summer and fall weekends, in fact its usually the only thing that can get me out of bed. It seems like it gets better every year, with new vendors and local foods. Also did I mention the donuts?! Made fresh every morning! They aren't cheap but the money goes to charity.
Absolutely love this farmers market. I've been to some in the past where the "farmers" just buy a bunch of stuff from grocery store suppliers, mark the price up real high, and call it local. This is not the case with this farmers market. Everyone is from the surrounding area and the produce is great. Prices are very reasonable. The doughnuts from the church are also a must get while there.
I'll have organic produce and specialties like jam with a side of delicious donuts, please.
Good mix of stuff available. Not just fruits and veggies. The church always has coffee and doughnuts. I would prefer if the people pushing politics would stay off the side walk, but it is a free country, and not a big deal.
Great time for all ages. A wonderful Oak Park tradition. Go for the fresh homemade donuts and coffee. Stay for the fresh produce, cheese and bread from local farmers.
