The last farmers market of the winter season at Evanston’s Immanuel Lutheran Church will take place tomorrow, but the weekly market at the Evanston Ecology Center has one more week to go.

The church market, held every other Saturday during the winter months, will be open for the last time this season from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 616 Lake St.

At the same time, the Ecology Center indoor market, at 2024 McCormick Blvd., will also be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. But it has another week to go, with the final market scheduled for April 30.

Then the action shifts to the 41st season of the downtown market, in the Northwestern University parking lot at University Place and Oak Avenue, behind the Hilton Garden Inn and adjacent to the city’s Maple Avenue parking garage, where parking is free with ticket validation at the City of Evanston tent.


That market begins on Saturday, May 7, and runs through Nov. 5, from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Saturday, with upwards of 60 vendors selling  a wide variety of goods each week, including fruits, vegetables, meat, flowers, cheese, eggs, and bakery items.
