Farmers Market Fun and Friendly in Oak Park
Saturday was the second of many more Farmers Markets in Oak Park since it happens every Saturday through October 27, 2012. It’s location is great at McClatchy Park. While shoppers bought and sellers talked, a 220 lb pig was roasting and a variety of interactive activities, including live music from local bands, activities for children (story-telling, face painting, art projects) were happening.
Jubilee Farm hosted an annual Pig Roast, a fundraiser, to help suport local food and local farmers.
Here’s some photos of the roasting pig and more:
Chef Brad put together a fantastic, local menu:
Jubilee Farm Berkshire Pork including:
Roasted Whole Pig
Salt Roasted Pork
Grilled Rack of Pork
Farm Fresh Chicken (Cooked Inside the Pork)

It was a great time and place to relax, visit and people watch.
