Established in 2003, the Downs Village Market specializes in locally grown and select regional produce. In addition, the market's motto, “Produce and More,” allows for bake sales, along with sales of meat and eggs, flowers and plants, quality crafts and handmade items, all of which may be at any market. Our twenty-one vendor spaces are often full at the height of the growing season.
Our produce vendors offer a wide variety of seasonal produce starting with spring's sweet early-season greens, progressing to luscious tomatoes, sweet corn, and all the other vegetables and fruits from the summer bounty produced by Illinois' small growers. As the weather cools, the season ends with apples, squash, pumpkins, and gourds for fall dining and decorating.
In the spring and early summer, customers at the market will also find a variety of potted plants, both vegetables and flowers, to use in their home gardens. Throughout the season, there is a weekly bake sale sponsored by a local group to support a variety of activities in and around the Village of Downs. In addition, at each market you will find a few craft vendors offering quality handmade items. All this is accompanied by the sounds of local and area musical groups offering a variety of entertainment.
The Downs Village Market, located just off I-74 at the southwest edge of Downs by the old Pumpkin Vine Railroad bed, offers a large variety of items for sale, friendly vendors, convenient parking and weekly entertainment.
