Horner Park Farmers Market – Details and Documents

Thank you for your interest in the 2018 Horner Park Farmers Market! This will be our 5th year holding our beloved market in our community! You have a great opportunity to help satisfy our residents’ hunger for our special, community-loved market.

Horner Park is nestled between several great Chicago communities including Ravenswood Manor, Horner Park West, Irving Park, Albany Park, and Ravenswood Gardens. These communities feature young families, couples, singles, and empty nesters, many of whom have expressed the desire to shop locally, and who have the disposable income to make this farmers market a profitable endeavor for you.

The Horner Park Farmers Market Committee hopes you are able to participate in our market this season. If you are interested in participating, please:
