It's Not Easy Being Orange!
Thank you Friends of the Market
It’s not easy being orange. Our Friends of the Market, that great bunch of people wearing orange shirts, work each week to transform the street into the Wednesday Farmers Market. It starts the night before with posting the no parking signs and continues early the next morning marking the street with Farmer Gray. Then it’s on to the storage areas by 1 PM to set up tents, clear the street, post more signs and help the vendors get ready for the big day. During the market they greet shoppers, support our sponsors through promotional activities and fund raise to keep the market a great place to shop. But it does not end there. At the end of the market they transform the street back into bustling downtown Grayslake. There are six more Markets to go. When you see a Friend in an orange shirt, say thanks! Special thanks go to Karin Abbott, Community Service Officer, the Grayslake Park District, the Grayslake Fire Department and the Village of Grayslake who provide safety to our shoppers and a great Market environment.
