Woodstock Farmer's Market - Homegrown and Handmade

The Woodstock Farmer's Market operates as a year-round "producers-only" market, allowing only products that are grown, produced, or made by the local Farmer or Artisan.

Farmers Markets are a great place to buy local products directly from farmers.

Food purchased at a local Farmers Market comes with outstanding freshness, quality, flavor, and variety.

You know exactly where your food comes from and how it was grown.

Additionally, you support a sustainable regional food system that helps small family farms stay in business, protects land from development, and provides fresh, local food.

Shop for fresh produce and local products all summer and winter long.

The Winter Market is held on the first and third Saturdays of the month, 9A-1P, November thru April, at the McHenry County Fairgrounds, 12015 Country Club Road, Woodstock, IL 60098.

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.

The Woodstock Summer Farmers Market has approximately 40 Saturday Vendors and 30 Tuesday vendors.

Discover organic and homegrown produce and fruits in season, delectable baked goods and delicious cheeses.

Other products such as beef, eggs, pork, honey, and wine are all grown or produced locally.

In addition to all of these wonderful goodies you’ll find woolen products and fleece; delightful soaps and body products; knife sharpening, and even some crafts.

Plus beautiful perennials; bedding, heirloom, and ornamental plants; hanging baskets, fresh cut flowers.

Keith Johnson, Market Manager, is shown in the video clip, using AmpliVox SB602R Megaphone, to thank all of the vendors and wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

AmpliVox’s Mity-Meg Rechargeable Megaphones provide a reliable, powerful sound amplification for market vendors, improving crowd control and communication between team members during their outdoor summer months and indoor winter market.

The SB602R Mity-Meg is a lightweight, weather-resistant design unit, delivering sound coverage of up to a mile with talk, whistle, and siren modes.

An integrated lithium-ion rechargeable battery and AmpliVox-exclusive power indicator light keeps the unit running for up to eight hours of typical use.

Weighing just two pounds, the Mity-Meg carries easily with the included wrist strap and comfortable pistol grip.
