Fall Farmers Market Fest

farmers-market-visit-carroll-county-illinois

Featuring Divide & Conquer II and Junk in the Trunk on October 21!

The Lanark Farmers Market officially closes the last Tuesday of October during Halloween Week, but not until it hosts one of the biggest and best markets of the season.

Sponsored by the Cornucopia Committee of Lanark, you are invited to participate in the Fall Four-In-One Farmers Market Fest, set for Tuesday, October 21 in the Lanark City Park.

As usual, the LANARK FARMERS MARKET is held every Tuesday, rain or shine, in the friendly confines of the Lanark City Park. But for the last few weeks, the time has been changed from 4 to 6 p.m. Check out https://www.facebook.com/LanarkFarmersMarket for details and specials.

Rummage Sale, Plant Swap, and Pumpkins!

10433939_1458468574422544_256534963400389200_nThree other special events are also scheduled for Oct. 21. Vendors and shoppers are welcome for JUNK IN THE TRUNK TOWN RUMMAGE SALE. Fill your car with stuff to sell, then drive to the park. Back into a parking space around the park perimeter to set up shop. Pavilion space will be available for overflow. If it’s cold, a warm fire will be started in the south pavilion, and hot cocoa, cider and coffee will be available.

Also that same day, the Cornucopia Committee is hosting the very popular plant swap, Divide and Conquer II. If your garden is too overgrown and crowded, “Divide and Conquer”! It’s a great time to clean up the garden before winter, share your overstock with neighbors, and find some new plants for yourself. If you have plants that just don’t meet with your aesthetic approval anymore, or a few too many bedding plants, bring those, too. They can be recycled to someone else’s yard!

Do you have some great Heirloom varieties? Swap seeds, too. Plants can be brought in plastic pots, plastic bags, card board flats or wrapped in newspaper. For a reasonable fee, you will be able to sell or swap just about anything. Proceeds will go to more fun and flora events in 2015.

And finally, a very special Pumpkin Presentation by Master Gardener Mary LaShelle, and right before Halloween!

Speak with Cornucopia Committee members (wearing green aprons) about how you can become a vendor in 2015.

Donations are requested for all events, with proceeds used toward Cornucopia Committee projects for the betterment of Lanark.

Proprietors: Dennis & Diane Etnyre

We grow a wide assortment of fruits and vegetables that we sell at our farm stand in Argo Fay and at Lyons Farmers Market in Clinton, Iowa. April-June: Early in the season we have asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries plus early season greens and vegetables. These are usually sold by order. July-November: Our farm stand opens daily in July with the start of green beans, sweet corn, and tomato harvest; and remains open through November with pumpkins, squash, gourds, and Indian corn. We also have apples, red raspberries, melons, and other seasonal vegetables. The only times we close are Wednesdays at 3:00 PM while at the farmers market and Saturday mornings. We open Saturday at 1:00. Otherwise we remain open. Produce is picked fresh daily.

Our children were active in 4H, FFA, and showed produce at local fairs. For more than twenty years, we’ve grown what we sell and it’s fresh from the garden, not shipped in. Not only is it nutritious, but our produce has that great homegrown taste, which both local customers and visitors enjoy.

The greatest challenge of operating our business is growing a constant supply with multiple plantings and extending the growing season. Of course, each year the weather presents various unpredictable challenges. Nevertheless, Carroll County features a great rural atmosphere with many neat people. We enjoy what we do and like meeting with the people that stop.
