Farmers Market

Farmers Market starts Saturday, June 5, 2021 – September 25, 2021
Every Saturday: 8AM – 1PM in Depot Park (next to Downtown Train Depot)

We are excited about the start of Downtown Crystal Lake’s Farmers Market.  In this time of COVID-19, we will continue following the CDC and Restore Illinois Guidelines for COVID safety protocols, which includes masking for unvaccinated vendors and customers. We are creating the healthiest shopping experience possible while providing locally grown produce, fresh baked goods, meats and eggs,  delicious olive oil, local honey, jams and jellies, and so much more. We can’t wait to see everyone during this market season.

While you’re here:
Shop in our unique Historic Downtown Area.
Have lunch outside in many of our fine Downtown restaurants.
Stroll the beautifully landscaped streets and discover the Heart of Crystal Lake!

Below is a list of our current farmers market vendors; check back often as we add more.
