Top 10 of 2018: #1 Launching of East Grand Farmers & Artisans Market

On July 15th this summer, the Village of Gurnee launched the brand new East Grand Farmers & Artisans Market at the corner of Belle Plaine and Grand Avenue. The first market welcomed in 30 local vendors selling anything from fresh fruit, coffee & tea, flowers, handmade crafts and so much more. In July we had over 700 community members attend, and the following markets in August, September and October brought more vendors and attendees for four successful markets in total. Public feedback suggests the East Grand Farmers & Artisans market was a huge hit for visitors and vendors alike. The Farmers & Artisans Market is excited to welcome you back in beginning summer 2019.
