Support Your Local North Shore Farmers Markets This Summer!

It’s exciting to know, now that Memorial Day weekend is behind us, that we’ve unofficially entered the summer season here on Chicago’s North Shore!  The North Shore communities of Winnetka, Northbrook, Highland Park, Deerfield and Glencoe are wonderful places to live throughout the year, but there’s something really special about the warm weather months.  There’s not only an even wider variety of things to do, but residents and visitors are able to get out and interact within their community on a deeper level.

As you know, if you’ve visited my blog in the past, I enjoy giving people a rich overview of what North Shore living entails.  My work as a North Shore Real Estate agent isn’t limited to market updates and helping buyers and sellers navigate the North Shore Real Estate market.  I want to be sure that those interested in moving to the area to discover the quality of life in these communities that’s hard to find anywhere else!

I’m passionate about what the North Shore communities have to offer and I hope you find them as appealing as I do!  In fact, now is a great time to get out and learn more about the North Shore.  The warm weather brings about the opening of local farmers markets that you’re sure to enjoy!  These markets are not only a fantastic way to get out and meet neighbors, you’re essentially giving back to the community!

Supporting local growers and artisans is one of the best things you can do to benefit the community, and in the process, you’ll get the freshest produce and unique finds!  Here are a few highlights of farmers markets in the area that will be opening within the next few weeks!
