On July 8, 2018, the 95th Street Farmers Market is open during the summer time on Sunday’s from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. It doesn’t matter if it rains or shines the people who serve you will fulfill your request. You’ll notice large tents on the southeast corner of 95th street and Longwood Drive in Beverly. Come out to the Farmers Market after service to meet the people that are within the Beverly community. There is a live band, fresh vegetables, delicious crepes, and barbeque foods on your wishlist.
One of the servers from Madsen Farmsis Jessie Dougher. Dougher sells fresh produce such as corn, carrots, cabbage, lettuce, spinach, and cucumbers. Farmers from the Kankakee area handpick vegetables to ensure customers receive fresh herbs during market hours. They have multiple bins set up that contain organically grown produce. The vendor is in the process of securing their organic license so they will be official very soon. Madsen Farms doesn’t spray pesticides on their vegetables which is necessary for customers to know that they are trusted.
There is a list of vendors that come to the Market: Madsen Farms, Blankenship Farm, C&D Farms, and Nothing Bundt Cakes. Other vendors, people will find Urban Canopy, Noffke Farms, Gotta B Crepes, Sweet Freaks, Sunflower, The Eating Well, Not Just Cookies, Down to Earth Beverly, and taco cart vendor Pollo Locuas.
The restaurant Gotta B Crepes is known as the best crepes anyone has tasted. Customers are ecstatic over the delicious handcraft crepes filled with banana, strawberry, Nutella, caramel, pesto pizza, buffalo chicken, ham, cheese, and cinnamon. People make special trips during lunchtime hours to buy one of the mouth-watering crepes. Shoppers consistently come back because the customer service is friendly, interactive, and they make the food before your eyes. The menu has a list of sweet, and savory specialties like the O’ Cinnamon Roll, Strawberry and Banana. These healthy choices are gluten-free, and kale infused for those customers that want substitutes.
