Deerfield Farmers Market Opens this Saturday with Special Entertainment & Activities for Kids

Entertainment every Saturday, special festivals and four action-packed Kids’ Days are all on the calendar for this year’s Deerfield Farmers Market, which opens rain-or-shine this Saturday, June 17, and runs every Saturday from 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. through mid-October. We have many wonderful long-time vendors returning and are excited to welcome some new vendors.  Come to for the fresh, local food and stay for the fun!
New this year: Many markets will include activities for kids, but four Saturday markets called “Kids’ Days” will feature special events including entertainers, market-themed arts and crafts and exciting games/prizes. The first of these Kids’ Days is planned for this Saturday and will feature “The Balloon Guy” as well as performances by Jodi’s Jiggle Jam at 9:30 and the Hummers & Strummers at 10:30. Kids will also be able to decorate shopping bags and enter a photo contest. Kids’ Days events kick off at 9 AM and conclude at noon.

A Deerfield tradition for more than 20 years, the Market has always attracted a wide range of outstanding local and regional fresh-from-the-farm vendors. But this year, a special emphasis has been placed on delivering an experience that ensures family fun for all who attend.
Looking for fresh local food and free family fun on a Saturday? Don’t miss the Deerfield Farmers Market, weekly at Deerfield Road and Robert York Avenue.
Food, Friends, Fun

New Mural Coming to Downtown Deerfield, See the Art, Meet the Artist Saturday at Farmers Market

The Fine Arts Commission has been working to bring a mural to the east wall of the AT&T building for more than five years. Last year, the Commission started discussions with Deerfield High School art teacher Michael Moran to turn the project into an experiential learning project for his graphic design students.
The Commission developed specifications for the mural and Mr. Moran used it as a lesson for his students. The Fine Arts Commission reviewed 30 proposals and chose six finalists to come present their proposals in person. Each finalist discussed their process and presented their artist’s statement.
The Commission voted to approve a design by DHS junior Ryan Wilde that features the interaction of light passing through various crystals on a deep purple background. Wilde will be at the Farmers Market information booth starting at 9:30 a.m. and there will be a brief ceremony at 10:15 a.m. at the market to discuss the program and honor the artist.
The mural will be attached to the east wall of the AT&T building and changed each year. A special thanks to AT&T for their cooperation with this project.
