Farmer's Market+ At The Dole…Voted #1 in Illinois, #3 in all the Midwest & #12 in the Nation 2021-2022

The Dole Farmers Market - "Farmer's Market+ At The Dole…  
Voted #1 in Illinois, #3 in all the Midwest & #12 in the Nation 2021-2022"

Is taking a short pause. Why a pause you ask? Good question! There’s only one reason that would cause a pause… The 42nd Annual Lakeside Festival At The Dole! The “Fest” is such an enormous 4-day event it requires over a week to prepare. Therefore, the Farmers Market+ has paused the June 26th & July 3rd market dates.

The Market will return on July 10th! Please make note in your calendar!

While we know many of you will miss the Market+, The “Fest” is the place to be over the Holiday weekend! Winner of Shaw Media’s “Best of the Fox” in the Festival category, so if you’re looking for fun, we’ve got you covered! Look no further than The Dole!
