Bees to return to the market

Bees from the Heller Nature Center in Highland Park are returning to Evanston's downtown Farmers Market tomorrow and will be on display at the Friends of the Evanston Farmers Markets tent in the southwest corner of the market.

They were last here on June 14, according to Friends officials, but are back by popular demand.

A beekeeper will have a live hive of honey bees under glass, so people who stop by the Friend's Tent from 9 to 11 a.m. can see bees making honey and doing their bee communicating.

Kids and adults alike can learn about how bees contribute to agriculture and to the earth's eco system. 

The market is open from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Saturday through Nov. 8, adjacent to the Maple Avenue parking garage and the Hilton Garden Inn Evanston.
