About the Brookfield Farmers Market
The Brookfield Farmers Market is held every Saturday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm in the Village Hall’s west parking lot, June 2 - October 13, rain or shine – although we’re always happy when it shines!
The Brookfield Farmers Market is a friendly and wonderful place to spend part of your day. The local farmers are amazing, and offer fresh local produce that is locally and sustainably grown in Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin. You will also find pastries, eggs, fresh-roasted coffee, honey, salsas, jams, artisan and hand-crafted goods… and much, much, more.
The Market has a great line-up of talented musicians for your listening pleasure. Special features and activities give you new things to see, learn and experience. The Chamber welcome tent serves as Brookfield’s summer central point for information on upcoming community events, local business promotions, Village information and fun things to do around town.
The Brookfield Farmers Market is operated by the Brookfield Chamber of Commerce’s Farmers Market Committee, with assistance provided by volunteers from Brookfield businesses and residents. 2018 marks the 11th year of the Market! The Brookfield Farmers Market is a cooperative effort of the Chamber and the Brookfield Village government and is financially supported through the generous sponsorship of community-minded businesses and vendor participation fees.
