The Alsip Park District strives to promote a healthier community. This summer our market will be featuring fresh, farm-raised products from local farmers. To promote authentic, locally grown produce, plants and prepared foods, our producers sell only what they raise themselves. Unlike produce that is transported across continents, the bounty you find from our farmers has been harvested just prior to market from 150-mile radius of the market. You will taste the difference, and you support local growers with your good decision to buy fresh and buy local! We also offer prepared foods, fresh bakery, summer treats, handmade crafts and household items.
