Coming in March!
Each winter, from November through April, Faith in Place partners with faith communities throughout Chicagoland to host a series of indoor farmers markets on Saturdays and Sundays. The farmers markets provide an additional source of income for local vendors during the off-season, promote sustainable farming methods and economic justice for regional farm families, encourage healthy, wholesome eating, and support the building of relationships between producers and consumers.
This year PUMC is excited to be selected as an onsite host for one of these markets.
Saturday March 16th from 10am-2pm
Faith in Place’s Farmers Markets include more than 20 vendors, each specializing in their own distinct trade. Faith in Place works to make each event well rounded with plenty of seasonal produce, eggs, meat, fish, honey, baked goods, prepared food, health and beauty products, salsas, preserves, and more.
What can you do to help make this a successful outreach? Sign up to volunteer and assist the vendors, and be on hand as hospitality “shepherds” to support the market! You can contact the church office or call Carol May, 815-351-9004. You can also view a full schedule of all the 2018-19 WFM season.
