Mundelein's Farmers Market- Guaranteed to Make you Smile!
By: Mary Flynn (Jul 15, 2011)
Mundelein's latest venture into bringing our residents a quality choice of fresh produce and more has paid off BIG Time! From the friendly, knowledgeable vendors to the volunteers, old downtown Mundelein is the place to be on Friday afternoons. I love the convenient time- 3-7:00 pm. It totally works for anyone who works or for those of us with crazy daytime schedules. So far I've feasted on fresh garlic (the coolest veggie you'll ever see!) asparagus picked that morning, gourmet varieties of potatoes, bread sent form Heaven above dipped in amazing olive oil & balsamic, scones to die for and fresh rhubarb and strawberries I quickly baked into a masterpiece- if I do say so myself! I've also bought humus & olives, fresh butter (what a treat!) wonderful cheese and even had my knives sharpened. The flower arrangements are not only beautiful, but so unique! Their guaranteed to get you rave reviews. Skip your trip to the grocery store this Friday and check out the Farmer's Market- you'll be glad you did!
