Evanston Indoor Farmers Market
In its first year, the near north suburban market is organized by Friends of the Evanston Market and features many of the same vendors that make their summer market such a smash. Vendors sell an array of offerings including gourmet baklava (from Sheekar Delights), gargantuan mushrooms (River Valley Ranch) and even organic soaps and lotions (Green Envee), just to name a few examples.
Saturdays through April 28, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
