Rain Doesn't Dampen Spirit of First Oswego Country Market

Rain storms didn't stop shoppers from taking in Oswego's first Country Market Sunday. (Submitted photo)



While the rainy weather was not what we ordered for our first weekend of the Oswegoland Park District’s Oswego Country Market this past Sunday, we had vendors and community members who waited out the rain so we could kick off the market in (soggy) style! 

Like the Field of Dreams, we saw that, “If you hold it, they will come.” The rain didn’t dampen our spirits and we were joined by some fierce fans who were there for their kale and croissants, even if they needed a canoe!

Thank you to all who came out to shop for food and other treasured goodies at the Oswego Country Market. We were so impressed by how many of you came out with umbrellas, galoshes, and smiles to get your favorite goodies! Shopping locally at our market helps promote a happy and healthy community. Not only are we able to purchase fresh, healthy, and delicious food, we get to re-connect with old friends and make new ones at the market each week.

Every Sunday through September you’ll find Oswegoland Park District staff available to answer questions about our facilities, events, and programs. You may find volunteers from a community group like the Oswego Public Library District who will let you know all about the summer reading program. You will have the opportunity to talk to people who take great pride it the products that they grow, make, or create.

Thank you to Bob Tripp, N.M. Tripp Insurance for once again providing space for the market. Thank you to the downtown businesses who support the market’s presence on Main Street and those who have opened their businesses on Sundays to provide patrons with more opportunities to spend locally. 

Week after week, market visitors will discover the charm of downtown Oswego. It’s a great location with plenty of parking and access to the Fox River Trail for bikers and hikers! This year, we have a bike rack set up behind the market for all of you who love to pedal your way over.

Please visit us on Sunday mornings from 9am-1pm! You can find your community here, at the Oswego Country Market! 

Stay informed about what the market has to offer each week by following us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/OswegoCountryMarket. We will be posting information about our vendors, special events at the markets, recipes, and more! If you have any questions or have suggestions please contact the Oswegoland Park District at 630.554.1010 or email Cori Veverka at cveverka@oswegolandpd.org.

Cori Veverka, Oswego Country Market Manager
