2020 VENDOR APPLICATION NOW OPEN!

Visit our Vendor Info page if you are a vendor interested in applying.

As the new year progresses and we move toward spring, we are getting excited about the 2020 market season! Our vendor application for the 2020 season is now live!

The Loyola Farmers Market provides local farmers and producers with the opportunity to share their products with the community! We serve three vibrant neighborhoods – Rogers Park, West Ridge, and Edgewater – on the city’s Far North Side and our location at the Loyola Red Line Plaza means that hundreds of commuters walk through the market every Monday. We are a producers-only market, meaning vendors must grow, raise, or otherwise produce the products that they sell.

Given our small space, we are primarily interested in food vendors, including prepared foods and food trucks. We are unable at this time to provide dedicated space for artisans or handicrafts. However, we may have opportunities throughout the season to host artisan “pop ups.” Contact Market Manager Elaine Simon at esimon8@luc.edu for more information.

We also provide a community table for local organizations and businesses to showcase their services or products. Contact Market Manager Elaine Simon at esimon8@luc.edu if you are interested in tabling at one of our markets.

The Loyola Farmers Market seeks to increase access to fresh, nutritious, locally grown and produced foods to community members in an urban setting while supporting the local food economy and small family farms.  The Market seeks to contribute to the University’s mission to serve those in need by providing a community gathering place where fresh, nutritious, locally-grown and produced foods are affordable and available.  The Market supports small growers who incorporate sustainable agricultural and land conservation practice. The Loyola Farmers Market serves as a place where diverse residents come together to enjoy a shared experience, meet growers, and learn about and support local food production.
