Farmers Market News

We are thrilled to announce that the 95th Street Farmers Market mural commissioned in 2017 is now part of the City of Chicago’s Mural Registry! We placed an official City of Chicago Mural Emblem on it at the September 8 Farmers Market. 

The mural measures about 100 feet long by 14 feet tall and was painted by local artist Elaine Miller. It illustrates Beverly’s transition from a rural community to an urban landscape. You can view the Farmers Market mural via an online map of the city’s mural registry. 

The Farmers Market is going strong, and the season continues through the month of October. Be sure to stop by on Sundays to select fresh picked produce, enjoy family friendly entertainment and connect with community partners, too!
