Carbondale Community Winter Farmers Market Opens Saturday, December 2nd, 2023
(Carbondale, IL) The Carbondale Community Farmers Market is excited to announce
opening day on Saturday, December 2nd! This winter indoor farmers market is at the University
Mall in Carbondale (Theater Entrance) from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. every Saturday, December
through March! (December 2nd-March 30th).
As a producer-only market, everything for sale is grown, cooked, baked, or made by the
person manning each booth. Offerings will include a wide range of sustainably grown
vegetables, grass-fed meats, dairy, eggs, prepared foods, infused olive oils, fresh breads and
baked goods, herbs, gourmet mushrooms, syrups, jams, jellies, local honey, hot sauces, and
other canned goods. Customers will also find soaps, body products, crafts, knife sharpening and
holiday decorations. Coffee and teas will also be available on site for patrons to enjoy while
We are excited to offer live music, as well as live cooking demos that feature produce
and products available at our market. We will continue our Kids Club Program where kids will
receive their own Kids Club market tote bag to decorate. Each week they will have the
opportunity to take part in different crafts, food challenges, or community activities. Upon
completion of their activity, kids will be rewarded with pins to place on their tote bags.
Carbondale Community Farmers Market will be partnering with other community organizations
like the Carbondale Park District during these weekly Kids Club events. No prior registration is
required for CCFM Kids Club. Families are encouraged to plan their trip to the market
accordingly as activity materials may be limited.
This year the market continues to welcome SNAP customers with the Link Match double
coupon program. Customers who receive SNAP benefits can use their LINK card to purchase
SNAP eligible foods at the market, and the Link Match program matches these purchases with
up to $25 per swipe, with unlimited swipes to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables at the
Carbondale Community Farmers Market is a program of Food Works, which is a
501(c)(3) non-profit organization, facilitating the development of a regional food economy in
Southern Illinois. We believe that a truly enduring approach emphasizes access to good food for
everyone, which keeps food dollars circulating in local communities, and balances human needs
with the health of the air, water and land resources on which all life depends.
