Have a new project that I am working on - a French/farmers market. Have wanted one in our town for a long time. So excited to be planning. If you are in the area, stop by and say hi! Here's a little info about the market and some of the things that you can see and do when you come to the Illinois Valley area.

Join us at the Historic Downtown LaSalle Canal Market! Located on First and Marquette Streets in downtown LaSalle.
What will you find at the LaSalle Canal Market? – An open air art and farmers market that is nestled near the historic IM canal and downtown LaSalle. The LaSalle Canal Market will run every 4th Saturday of the month from May until September. It offers unique vendors and you will find a fresh bounty of fruit and veggies, bouquets of flowers, one of a kind items such as jewelry, art, crafts, clothing, meat and cheese vendors, baked goods, music and more. As in Europe, the market is much more than a place to shop. It is a meeting place for the community, where you can shop at your leisure. Plus, you will get that personal one-to-one interaction with the vendors and see the same people at your favorite booths week after week. There is no admission charge, so bring the whole family and friendly pets are also welcome.
