The Illinois Specialty Growers Association will be sponsoring the 17th Farmers’ Market at the Illinois State Fair (August 10-20, 2017). The farmers’ market will actually be in the same tent as the Illinois Department of Agriculture at the Corner of Center and Main (new location!). Hours are 11:00 am to 7:00 pm daily. We will be selling sweet corn, apple cider slush, peaches, cantaloupe, watermelon, popcorn, and fresh garden salads. Plan to stop by the tent for the freshest food at the state fair! If you are interested in working at the tent selling produce one of the days, you will receive complimentary parking and gate passes. Contact Jim at JFraley@ilfb.org or 309-557-2109 if interested. We need help promoting YOUR industry!
