Harvest Market Temporarily Moving to Old Gail Borden Lot on August 12

Due to the pavement reconstruction project that will completely shut down the intersection of Highland Avenue and Douglas Avenue in Downtown Elgin from Thursday, August 12 through Monday, August 16, this Thursday’s Downtown Elgin Harvest Market will be temporarily relocated THIS WEEK ONLY to the Old Gail Borden Parking Lot on the south side of Kimball Street across from the Gail Borden Public Library. Hours of operation are 10am-4pm.

The Harvest Market will return to its usual home at the Civic Parking Lot at Highland and Douglas Avenues next to City Hall on Thursday, August 19.

In addition to a wide selection of locally grown and produced fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses and other food items, the Harvest Market welcomes back Mad Discs and Dyes for another T-shirt tie-dying demonstration at Noon on Thursday.

Nestled in the heart of historic Downtown Elgin within minutes of the Grand Victoria Casino, Metra and the scenic Fox River, and within walking distance from Downtown’s dining and shopping district, the Harvest Market attracts hundreds of local residents and workers each and every week.
