I have been to the "farmers markets" in both Dundee and Algonquin and have been very disappointed. Both of these are more like flea markets. A bunch of stands with people selling trinkets and other garage sale type items, but produce stands are rare. The ones that are there, well, I suspect that some of the items were purchased at the local grocery store. For example, the cherry tomatoes at one booth, I swear, were just bought at Jewel and then they cut the lids off to hide the label.
So... with that said, anything nearby that has decent locally grown produce?
Oh yes, I am new to the suburbs so any pointers to good locally grown produce stands in the area is much appreciated as well.
Thank you for any help.
