The Loyola Farmers Market is a “producers only” market.  Therefore the growers and producers grow and produce their food.  The farmers take care to grow quality fruits and vegetables.  The bakers and other local producers also take considerable time securing quality ingredients to bring you healthy and great-tasting foods.

  • Are any of the vegetables, grains and beans that are sold at your Loyola Farmer’s Market grown as organic-certified products?

    • Our vendors are not USDA Organic certified. However, many of our farmers use organic and/or sustainable practices! Next time you stop at are market, don’t be afraid to ask our vendors about their growing practices 🙂

  • I was very happy to find this website. I want to to thank you for your time for
    this wonderful read!! I definitely appreciated every little
    bit of it and I have you bookmarked to see new
    things on your blog.

    • Hi J –
      Parking is available on the side streets in the surrounding neighborhood. Some is free (be careful of the permit-only areas though), and there are some metered spots directly across Sheridan Road from the market on Loyola Avenue and along the west side of Sheridan Road. Avoid parking in the lot directly north of the market, as these spots are reserved for residents of the Morgan and patrons of Blaze, IDOF, and the other restaurants in that plaza and you could have your car towed.
