A bit chilly, perhaps, but still 3 markets to go


Temperatures are predicted to be mostly in the 40s for Evanston’s Saturday Farmers Market tomorrow, but there are still three more markets to go before the 2018 season ends.

The last outdoor market is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 3, in the Northwestern University parking lot behind the Hilton Garden Inn and adjacent to the city’s Maple Avenue parking garage, where validated parking is available at no charge for market customers.

Now in its 43d year, the market hosts some 58 Midwest vendors selling fruits, vegetables, meat, flowers, cheese, eggs, baked goods, and more. The market is open from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A list of vendors can be found on the city’s website.
