With summer in full swing, we are also in the heart of farmer’s markets season. When it comes to food, nothing beats fresh, local produce from local farms. Farmer’s markets provide small businesses and farmers to showcase their items to the community, and it feels good knowing your money is going directly into your community.
To highlight these people and all of their hard work, we wanted to inform our residents about farmer’s markets happening right here in Naperville. From fruits and veggies to cheeses, honey, baked goods, sweets, and more, these are the best local markets for you to enjoy!

Just 20 minutes north of Whitcomb Terrace, and within walking distance of Marquette Park Beach, Miller Beach Farmers Market is one of the best. This is a great way to get out on a weekend and see both a fantastic market and get out on the water!
This market features a vast range of local foods and craft goods, including farm-fresh produce, baked goods, ethnic foods, honey, plants, fresh-cut flowers, handmade soaps and body butter, cheese, jewelry, and art. Outreach and education are important, which is why we also sponsor local nonprofits and feature them in the market.
This not-for-profit market relies on vendors and fundraising. Volunteers are a huge part of our organization, an extension of the Miller Beach Arts & Creative District.
Come enjoy the sunshine!
