BOLINGBROOK – The weekly summer concert series and farmers market returns Thursdays to the Promenade Bolingbrook beginning June 6.

From 4 p.m. to 9 p.m, every Thursday from June 6 to Aug. 27, and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Sept. 5 to Oct. 3, the farmers market will feature 40 food, produce, crafts and plant vendors from the Bolingbrook area.

Make It Happen Pronto will organize the farmers market for the fourth straight year, and director of marketing and event organizer Angela Smith promises something for children, adults, chefs and food enthusiasts alike.

"The vendors sell predominantly food – a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, grass fed meats, cheeses, baked goods, and pastas," Smith said. " But, gourmet cooks can also browse a large selection of balsamic vinegars, olive oils, herbs and spices, and even get their knives sharpened."

Following the market, shoppers can enjoy live music at the Promenade's evening concert series. From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Main Street Live Concerts will showcase blues, rock, country 80's and several cover bands.

Promenade Bolingbrook Director of Marketing Kris Kuchlar explains that the concert series and farmers markets aid the promenade's mission of providing fun, family-oriented events and activities.

"We are really excited about the Promenade's summer line-up," Kuchlar said. "It is something residents of all ages can enjoy and the events are all free. It's a wonderful chance for families to be outside and spend time together."

Both the concerts and farmers market will be weather permitting, according to Promenade Bolingbrook staff.
