The Best Farmers Markets Near Kelmscott Park and Lake Forest

  |     |   Local Events, Outdoor Activities

Farmers Markets and summertime go hand in hand, with many markets running through the fall. There’s something wonderful about fresh, local produce and handcrafted goods. Small businesses and farmers showcase their products and services to the community, and it feels good to the consumer to know where their food came from.

We wanted to highlight these farmers and crafters and inform our residents at Kelmscott Park about farmers markets happening right here in and around Lake Forest. From fruits and veggies to craft goods, honey, and baked goods, these are the best local markets to enjoy!
