Thanks for commenting on this! We've never been to any of the Oak Park farmer's market events, but after looking at this list, my mouth is watering and I'm so frustrated at trying to navigate even the health-food stores to find decent food. I think we might go check it out.

Greenfish and others, note that the market this coming Saturday is in Chicago, not Oak Park.
