Faith in Place sponsors indoor Winter Farmers Markets throughout Chicagoland. Our markets are itinerant, meaning we are constantly moving to different houses of worship, and are open to the public. They provide small, local farm producers, who use sustainable practices, with additional venues to extend their income beyond the growing season. We collaborate with many different faith communities and each season will be slightly different. This year we will have 15 markets on various Saturdays and Sundays from November into April.
Link Match: Illinois Link cards/SNAP benefits accepted at all markets! All Link/SNAP customers can double their Link purchases up to $25 to buy fruits and vegetables!

A wonderful resource for local farmers and fresh produce in the Chicago area. A great treat in the middle of a Midwest winter. Farmers are knowledgeable and the organizers are top-rate. Do go! It will be worth the effort.
