Buffalo Grove kicks off Farmers Market season

The Buffalo Grove Farmers Market began its 16th season Sunday with a mix of familiar vendors and some fresh additions.

Thirty-six vendors, including six new ones, offered their wares along Route 83, between Deerfield Parkway and Buffalo Grove Road. The site had a slight relocation due to the construction of the new amphitheater at Mike Rylko Community Park. But other than that, very little has been changed.

“I like that there are farmers with fresh produce,” said one of the customers, Tim Adornetto of Grayslake. “And I like that there are bakers that make sourdough bread. I also like to support small businesses.”

Favorites included the Cheese People, Green Cuisine and Bailey’s Farm to Home, which offered fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers. Other vendors offered everything from rum cakes and egg rolls to cold brewed coffee and freeze-dried candy.

The duo Second Wind provided a musical backdrop to the proceedings.

Paulette Greenberg, marketing manager for the market, said opening day was busy.

“The vendors are very happy,” Greenberg said. “We lost one big farmer. We replaced him with two other farmers.”

The market continues every Sunday until the second Sunday in October.
