The Market, now in its 36th year, is located on the Historic Woodstock Square, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was recognized in 2007 as a Distinctive Destination by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In addition to our wonderful Farmers Market, the Square is very much alive with the famed Woodstock Opera House, the Old Courthouse Arts Center, distinctive shops, unique restaurants and coffee shops, and comfortable lodging. The Square also boasts many unique special events throughout the year.
Located approximately 50 miles northwest of Chicago in the center of McHenry County, Woodstock also serves as the County Seat. Initially, the majority of homes, businesses, and industry were located on the eastern edge of the County along the Fox River. McHenry County has rapidly become urbanized, however, with growth radiating to the west. Thousands of acres of prime agricultural land still exists; however, the ability of small specialty crop growers to continue their agricultural pursuits depends upon being able to directly market their crops at venues such as the Woodstock Farmers Market.
The Woodstock Farmers Market is a producers’ market, allowing only products that are grown, produced, or made by the local Farmer or Artisan. The market is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the producers. The Board establishes the rules, assigns spaces and fees, and develops publicity strategies. Board members also inspect each vendor’s facility to ensure that all products are grown or produced by that vendor. That means you will find only the freshest, tastiest, in-season produce and healthy, locally-grown plants. Of course, our other products…beef, eggs, pork, honey, wine, cheeses, etc.…are all grown or produced locally, by the vendors you’ll meet at the market. We encourage you to ask questions and get to know our vendors. Remember…Buy Fresh…Buy Local.
