To the Editor:
Community members, staff, vendors and pups were all smiles at the Oswegoland Park District’s Oswego Country Market this past Sunday. The sun was shining, and it felt like a family reunion as over 3,000 people greeted friends and neighbors near their favorite produce and products.
Thank you to all who came out to shop for food and other treasured goodies at the Oswego Country Market. We were so impressed by how many of you came out to support the vendors and downtown businesses. Shopping locally at our market helps promote a happy and healthy community. Not only are we able to purchase fresh, healthy and delicious food, we get to reconnect with old friends and make new ones at the market each week.
Every Sunday through September, you’ll find Oswegoland Park District staff available to answer questions about our facilities, events and programs. You may find volunteers from a community group. You will have the opportunity to talk to people who take great pride it the products that they grow, make or create.
Thank you to Bob Tripp, N.M. Tripp Insurance for once again providing space for the market, and to Floral Expressions and Lil’ Emm’s Boutique for letting us set up a seating area for hungry patrons. Thank you to the downtown businesses who support the market’s presence on Main Street and those who have opened their businesses on Sundays to provide patrons with more opportunities to spend locally. Week after week, market visitors will discover the charm of downtown Oswego. It’s a great location with plenty of parking and access to the Fox River Trail for bikers and hikers!
Please visit us on Sunday mornings from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can find your community here, at the Oswego Country Market. Stay informed about what the market has to offer each week by following us on Facebook at facebook.com/OswegoCountryMarket.
