Farmers Market

The St. Charles Farmers Market is a year round farmers market.

The St. Charles Outdoor Farmers Market runs every Friday from June through October each year.

New this year, The St. Charles Indoor Farmers Market runs Fridays, weekly, November – May from 9-12 noon in Baker Hall. Enter via the Cedar Avenue entrance.

The 2015 St. Charles Outdoor Farmers Market opens Friday, June 5, at 7 a.m. The Market is open every Friday through October 30, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is located at Fourth Avenue and Main Street, along Baker Memorial United Methodist Church.

The St. Charles Farmers Market offers fresh Kane County produce, fruit, cheese, eggs, beef and goat meat, poultry products, bountiful fruit and flowers from Michigan Orchards as well as fresh flowers, garden plants, honey, produce and foodstuffs from Illinois growers. The Market also offers a tempting array of gourmet food products, fresh baked bread, garden and landscaping products, jewelry, arts and crafts.

2015 marks the eleventh season the St. Charles Farmers Market is sponsored by Baker Memorial United Methodist Church. The Market is a vital part of the Church’s community outreach and helps generate funds and increased awareness of the Church’s many mission programs.

“Shoppers at the 2014 St. Charles Farmers’ Market will see more farm products, eggs, fresh produce, fruit and locally raised produce,” said Market Manager Robert Murphy.  “We are thrilled to see the growing interest by farmers and food vendors in our market and very proud of the large number of farm-fresh family-owned farmers selling their products at this market.  I encourage the community to visit the Market on Fridays and to make it a weekly trip.”


St. Charles Farmers’ Market shoppers can also purchase breakfast and lunch items, coffee and beverages at the Market.  Delicious gourmet food items are available from a number of Market vendors and at the Baker Church Food Tent.

 Some of our Vendors

Curds & Whey Cheese Company

Curds & Whey Cheese Company began with the humble cheese curd and the demand to provide fresh curds at local farmer markets. In 2003 the St. Charles Farmers Market was going out of business. We moved the Market to its current site at Baker Memorial United Methodist Church and undertook to rebuild the Market under the sponsorship of Baker Church. Faced with the prospect of losing the Market’s cheese vendor as a result of the local cheese shop going out of business, Rob and Debb Murphy formed Curds & Whey Cheese Company with the initial goal of selling artisan and regional cheeses at the St. Charles Market. Along with great cheeses came fresh cheese curds from one of our favorite cheese makers, Renard’s Cheese Company of Door County, Wis.

Over the past several years, Curds & Whey expanded its business to include local farmer markets in the central Fox Valley Illinois region. Curds & Whey specializes in unique regional artisan cheeses, fine imported international cheeses, dairy products including butter, farmstead milk, farm fresh local eggs and related local foodstuffs.

The Crystal Ranch

Hi, my name is Carol Rushton and I am Level 3 Reiki Master/Teacher. I am certified to heal others using Reiki energy. I came about this opportunity to learn about reiki through my own story of trying to understand why I could see no benefits to a lifetime of western medicine on my mind and body.

I wanted to understand why I never got better and how to heal those things I wished to heal at the core of the problem instead of covering up the symptoms with medication. I wanted to learn how to eliminate worry and fear from my mind so I could live a joyful, healthy, and productive life.

I began to search for a way to heal my heart. I prayed to God and received beautifully orchestrated guidance to the healing art of Reiki. In the time since I have found Reiki I have found an increase in not only inner peace but also I have conquered all addictions and experience consistently good health since.
