Mt. Carroll Farmers Market
The Farmers Market continues downtown Mt. Carroll 8 am-noon every Saturday May through October. The Market will feature locally grown specialty crops as well as goods contributed by bakers, crafters, and artisans.
A special highlight are the Learn Great Foods Cooking Demonstrations at 10:00 am held indoors at the Market Street Commons, 320 N. Main St., the corner of Market and Main Streets. Penny Lally from the Driftless Area Stillroom will prepare a recipe with potatoes on September 3rd and Tom Nedbal will conduct a presentation on applesauce procedure on September 10th. Attendees will receive a free Learn Great Foods book specific to the day's cooking lesson which includes health information and recipes.
Also at the Farmers Market is the "Make & Take" program for children. Each session will be based on Illinois Ag Mag magazines donated by the Carroll County Farm Bureau where children will create and take home a craft or activity related to knowledge about local specialty crops. The Carroll County Kids 4-H club will present the Make and Take Activity under a tent canopy at the Farmers Market on Brick Street Saturday, September 3rd from 10 am-12 pm. Children of all ages will have the opportunity to make many different styles of bird feeders and take home a small project book with all these ideas listed. There is no charge for participants.
Enjoy the opportunity to buy high quality, fresh, nutritious, affordable farm products directly from our local farmers every week! The Farmers Market is sponsored by the Mount Carroll Chamber of Commerce, www.mtcarrollil.org (1-800-244-9594) and this program is funded by the Illinois Department of Agriculture 2011 Illinois Specialty Crop Grant Program.
