The Illinois Products Farmers’ Market is back! Starting this Thursday, May 8th, the Farmers’ Market will be open at the Commodities Pavillion across from the Grandstand at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. The Farmers’ Market is open every Thursday night from 4 p.m.-7 p.m. through October 16th except during the Illinois State Fair (August 7 & 14). You can find fresh Illinois products, including produce, meat, eggs, honey, bakery items, herbs, plants, flowers and even wine.
