Arlington Heights Farmers Market begins Saturday, June 2.
Byline: Arlington Heights Historical Society
It's that time a year again! Starting Saturday, June 2 (7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.), the commuter parking lot across from the Arlington Heights Historical Museum transforms into a bustling market full of fresh produce of the season, homemade pastries, handmade crafts, and much more.
Favorite vendors, such as Fraternite Notre Dame, baking homemade French pastries and A Taste of Michigan Cherries selling cherry jams and salsa, will return to the market. New vendors have also been added such as Pure Bliss Artisan Soap, Zingabrew Ginger Beer, Dennanne Apiaries selling beeswax products, and Lourdes Creations specializing in metal garden art. In addition to vendors, music from local artists entertains market-goers while shopping, a monthly children's craft table will be available, and the beloved Arlington Club soda that was first produced across the street 130 years ago returns to quench the thirst of shoppers.
On the last Saturday of each month during market season, the Arlington Heights Historical Museum will open its historic buildings for free for market-goers to tour (9 a.m.-12 p.m.). The public will have a chance to tour the turn-of-the-century homes of the once prominent Mller and Banta familiesuboth homes are fully furnished to period. In addition to the homes, the Coach House and reproduction log home introduces visitors to the time when Arlington Heights was just a farming community. Visit www.ahmuseum.org for the complete Open House list of dates.
The Arlington Farmers Market runs from June 2-October 13, every Saturday from 7 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The market is an ever changing experience as new produce becomes available throughout the growing season.
