Dear Friends of the Berwyn Township Farmers Market-

After lots of thoughtful discussion and deliberation, the Berwyn Township Board and the Berwyn Public Health District Board voted on Monday to discontinue this year's Berwyn Township Farmers Market. For the record, David Avila voted nay on the Health Board. Please know that this was not an easy decision for anybody.

Last year we increased the frequency of the market to every Sunday in hopes of increasing attendance. The number of attendees did not improve.

We have been criticized for not having more farmers at our market. This was not for lack of trying. We have attended farmers’ markets in Oak Park, (both the summer and winter markets), Lyons (until they could no longer sustain their market), Brookfield, La Grange, Burr Ridge, Hinsdale, Chicago (Daley Center, Weiss Memorial), and many other markets in Illinois, as well as some in Wisconsin. The repeated response we have received when asking farmers to join our market was that the farmers would not be willing to attend a Sunday market. Sunday was their one day off, their one day to spend time with family.

We considered attempting a Tuesday evening market, a night that is currently not "taken" for Farmers Markets in the area. This is an evening when our staff is currently here until 8:00 p.m. It made sense from the standpoint of being proper stewards of tax dollars entrusted to us. When we reached out to farmers, the ones currently in our Sunday market, and an additional 50 that were not, we could not get a strong enough commitment to even consider holding a Tuesday market.

We do not want untruths or rumors to fly. We are of the belief that our residents are due an explanation as to what is, or isn’t, currently transpiring with the Farmers Market. There have been discussions about not having sufficient volunteers or staff to run the market. We made it work, despite the challenges, staffing was not the concern. The market was set up and taken down without issue during each weekly market.

Simply put, the part of the Farmers Market that we felt was missing was the community involvement. It is difficult, if not impossible, to gage the desire and the needs of the community when the community isn’t present and has not provided input.

To this end, YOU have an opportunity to speak your piece and engage in the discussion. A small group of community minded individuals will be meeting to discuss of how our residents can support the efforts of a community run market.

***Please note this is NOT going to be a Township or a Health District led discussion. I am hoping that the discussion will be a positive one with ideas for the future rather than a rehashing of the past. I trust the organizers of this discussion will share salient comments, ideas, and feedback after the discussion has happened.


THE INVITATION IS REPRINTED BELOW

After careful and intense deliberation, Berwyn Township and Health Services has reluctantly decided to no longer manage the Berwyn Farmers Market. Please join us for a meeting Wednesday, January 23rd, 7:30pm at Unity Church (31st and Euclid) to discuss the future of the Market as a community run event.

Después de una cuidadosa e intensa deliberación, el municipio de Berwyn y los servicios de salud decidieron a regañadientes no administrar más el mercado de agricultores de Berwyn. Únase a nosotros para una reunión el miércoles 23 de enero a las 7:30 pm en la Iglesia Unity (31 y Euclid) para hablar sobre el futuro del Mercado como un evento administrado por la comunidad.

Thank you to all of our Hometown Heroes!

Fire Cider
Have you heard of fire cider? It's been used an essential herbalist tonic for years. There is little research on the drink but the ingredients within are well-known for their beneficial health properties.
Our cider has been steeped for 4 weeks with apple cider vinegar, ginger, horseradish root, onion, garlic, jalapenos, lemon, turmeric, cayenne, rosemary, and dark honey. These superfoods combine to create a warming and surprisingly tasty cider which can break up congestion and help prevent the cold and flu. To enjoy, drink a spoonful or shot each day, mix with warm water or tea, use in salad dressings, or in a hot toddy cocktail.

Have berries that look too mushy to enjoy? Chuck em into a protein shake for a sweet treat. The last of my tart black raspberries from Barry's Berries made for a delicious addition to this morning's vanilla protein shake. Added some supergreens to boost the fiber and energy sans caffeine. Yum!

Be sure to visit Barry's Berries at the next Berwyn Township Farmers' Market, August 13, 9a to 1p, in Lesak Park on 26th and East Ave.

So sorry to see that the Berwyn Township Farmer's Market was not sustainable! We will miss it!!
Rafael Unca Raffy Nieves is pumped for the 1st Berwyn Township Farmers' Market tomorrow, Sun. 7/1, at 9AM, We've got some Berwyn Pride prints & hot off the press, Welcome Home Oak Park. With Pride prints. See ya there! :D
Will there be a petting zoo at the 2018 market like in prior years? Please say no or my family will be forced to boycott the entire season again and spend our Berwyn $ in neighboring communities’ farmers markets.
Do we have dates yet for the 2018 season, or is it not happening this year?
