La Salle Farmers Market
The La Salle Farmers Market is held every Tuesday, 3:00-6:00 PM, from June 1st until the end of September, at the northwest corner of Hegeler Park (intersection of Route 351 and Maple Road).
Vendors who pay the full $80 to participate all summer have the ability to select their preferred booth location for the entire summer on a "first paid, first-reserved basis." Otherwise, the cost to be a vendor is $5 per week.
If you have questions about the types of foods that can be sold at farmers markets, please download the 'IL Farmers Market Food Safety' guide. This document not only provides information about foods that are allowed/prohibited but also details the requirements for Cottage Food Operators (i.e., those who produce and package foods, such as baked goods, candy, jams/jellies, etc., in their home). Specific questions should be directed to the LaSalle County Health Department at (815) 433-3366.
**Please Note that non-profit organizations (e.g., churches, schools, clubs) are allowed to sell baked goods, jam/jellies, etc., at farmers markets for fundraising purposes, as long as it is done on an "occasional basis." The LaSalle County Health Department interprets "occasional" as no more than six times per year. Please refer to page 8 of the IDPH Technical Information Bulletin #30 (download above), and call the Health Department with further questions.
