As summer winds down, a slew of garden-fresh produce comes into season. Radicchio, plums, winter squash and turnips are some vegetables that are harvested fresh in September. Other end of summer crops includes apples, Asian pears, and peaches. The Lisle French Market (on Burlington Ave between Spencer Ave and Center Ave.) provides consumers a convenient choice to buy the season’s ripest produce in their Saturday market.
The Lisle French Market continues to bring shoppers a diverse array of locally produced products. Great Harvest (Naperville) bakes bread fresh and other sweets for the French market. Windy Acres Farm (West Chicago) offers their fresh fruits and vegetables. The market is open Saturdays and operates from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The season runs through October 27; and admission is free and pets are allowed.
