5th Avenue Farmer’s Market

More than two-dozen vendors have been packing the parking lot of the 5th Avenue Station each Saturday for the Farmers Market that had its season opener in June.

“This is our 26th year here so it actually was founded by one of an original farmer of Naperville, so with it a lot of our vendors are still the original vendors here and if not it’s the next generation because there’s a lot of them if they’re having babies the kids are taking over which is really pretty cool,” said Kathy Mortensen, Property Manager – 5th Avenue Station.

From veggies and fruits to fresh honey, visitors were able to choose from a variety of items straight from the farm.

“Cantaloupes, sweet corn and tomatoes is our three major things here at the farmers market, I’ve been coming to the farmers market since day 1 same farm stand since 1960,” said Steve Theis, Evergreen Farm.

In more recent years, vendors also began selling organic items.

The Market will be open every Saturday from now through October from 7 am to noon.
