On Saturday, October 21 from 12pm to 8pm, Locavore Farm will host its inaugural Autumn Art & Farm Experience - a curated event, connecting the creativity of handmade art and design with the development of agricultural ecosystems that inspire sustainable and self-sufficient food systems and lifestyles.
Partnering up with market manager, LouLou Belle Markets, Locavore Farm will host 50+ artisans and makers from throughout the Midwest. Vendors will set up shop among the gardens, forest and fields of Locavore Farm. Throughout the day and evening there will be live music and dining at Locavore’s signature 100’-foot table, set out steps from where ingredients for a farm-fresh menu grow.
“We are excited to announce a new event collaboration with our friends, Dodi and Lisa, co-owners of Loulou Belle in Homewood (IL). For some time, we've discussed curating an experience here at the farm that would connect art and nature in a way that would inspire and engage, says Rachael Jones, co-owner of Locavore Farm.
