95th Street Farmers Market Vendor Story: Six Generations Farmin’ Local, Inc.

he Naperville Park District’s 95th Street Farmers Market continues on Thursdays from 3:00-7:00 p.m. through September 26.  After a successful first season, we welcome both returning and new vendors to expand the variety of home-grown and locally produced food and other items.

This is one of several blog posts highlighting the vendors that make up the 95th Street Farmers Market.

Another returning vendor is Six Generations’ Farmin’ Local, Inc. With farms in multiple locations, including northern and southern Illinois, Michigan and Kentucky, Six Generations brings a large variety of fruits and vegetables to the market. For example, when I visited their stand on June 27, they already had sweet corn and peaches from their southern locations.
 
True to its name, the farm has been in the family for six generations. Employees like Cullen, who was working the market the day I visited, assist the family by handling multiple farmers markets each week. They attend two markets during the week and 13 on the weekend. Six Generations sends a truck from Carbondale, IL to the 95th Street Farmers Market each week, which is about a four-hour drive. 
 
Visit the Six Generations Farmin’ Local stand at the 95th Street Farmers Market on Thursdays from 3:00-7:00 p.m. through September 26.  The Market is located at the 95th Street Library parking lot on Cedar Glade Drive and 95th Street.
