New Lenox French Market by Bensidoun USA Boasts Array of Vendors and Family Activities

The French market in New Lenox creates a unique gathering place for buyers and sellers, aiming at promoting more sustainable shopping habits. This south-suburban market provides the necessary environment to shop local – by hosting a variety of vendors from wine and cheese makers to jewelry and dog treats sellers.

The vendor Nature’s Pasture sells grass-fed beef and pork raised from their farm in nearby Auburndale, Wisconsin. Striving to promote responsible food practices – they are, “dedicated to growing natural food in a natural environment.”

Public markets are known for their fresh assortment of fruits and vegetables. The New Lenox French market presents KAP Farms and Zeldenrust Farms to meet the need. Zeldenrust Farms is a veteran of farmers markets, and has been providing the Chicagoland area with local produce since 1969. Another vendor Hahn’s Bakery sells a fun selection of mustard jams and jellies, and Stamper Cheese delivers on domestic and imported cheese.

There is more than food available at the New Lenox French Market. The Art Box sells jewelry and colorful ceramic tiles. For the four-legged visitors, Tucker’s Doggie Delights has natural treats and other pet supplies available.

Organizers of the market have also planned activities on select Saturdays. Momma Cuisine will be at the market on August 11, helping parents create “great everyday meals” by sharing her knowledge and recipes. There will also be children’s activities, hands-on workshops and the New Lenox Food Pantry Collection.

The New Lenox French Market is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., through October 6; and is located in the south parking lot of Village Hall. The market is run by Bensidoun USA, a company with 50 years of experience in management and development.
