Friends of Evanston Farmers Markets (a 501(c)(3) organization) educates the public about the benefits of eating fresh, locally grown foods, and advocates greater access to healthy food for all community members, regardless of means.

To accomplish our goals, we seek matching funds to help LINK participants' food dollar go further; offer cooking demonstrations featuring local chefs at the Downtown market; and partner with other organizations to offer fun and educational experiences for children of all ages. Our website and emails help to keep the public informed of food, farming and environmental news, as well as upcoming market events.

We are always striving to do more, and you can help. Get in touch with us to volunteer. There are many ways to be a friend of the Evanston Farmers Markets!
