The Immanuel Lutheran Church Winter Farmers Market is part of the Evanston Farmers Markets. Participation in this Winter Market provides healthy options to a community of hungry local customers ANDsupports hungry people in need. Vendor donations are used to support Immanuel Lutheran Church's involvement in local, national, and global anti-hunger initiatives.
Funds from the 2015/16 winter market were distributed to: Hillside Food Pantry, YWCA Evanston/North Shore Mary Lou's Place, Soup at Six, World Hunger Appeal of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Curt's Cafe and Interfaith Action of Evanston. As in years past, the Hillside Food Pantry will continue to collect farmer/vendor excess products at the end of every market to be sure they are placed in the hands of people who need them.
This year the market Cafe is run by Eric Singer, former owner of Lucky Platter and adjunct professor at Kendall Culinary Institute. Breakfast and lunch options using local product are available to eat in or take out.
