DNA Takes Harvest Market on the Road with “Pop Up” Markets

2013_HM_LogoBefore the Downtown Elgin Harvest Market – Presented by Alexian Brothers Health System gets popping this June, the Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA) of Elgin is taking the Harvest Market on a May road trip by offering two “Pop Up” Markets to preview the upcoming season.

The “Pop Up” Markets will take place on Thursday, May 9 from 10am-1pm, at the newly opened Alexian Brothers Women & Children’s Hospital in Hoffman Estates, and again on Thursday, May 16 from 10am-1pm inside the pavilion of the Grand Victoria Casino, 250 S. Grove Avenue in downtown Elgin.

These Pop Up Markets will be a sampler size version of our normal market to give the public a taste of just a few of the many fresh, local products available at the Downtown Elgin Harvest Market, which opens Thursday, June 6, 9am – 2pm at 200 N. Grove Avenue in Downtown Elgin and runs every Thursday for 18 weeks.
