The Evanston Farmers' Market is a great way for community members to connect and enjoy locally grown food, but what exactly does locally grown mean? Evanston is a suburb just outside of one of the largest cities in the country, so it's not necessarily the best place to grow fruits and vegetables. But all the food sold at the Farmers' Market come from neighboring cities and states, so it's a lot more eco-friendly than being trucked across the country or shipped from other continents. Check out the map below to track the travels of the delicious food sold at the Evanston Farmers' Market every Saturday!
