What a fun Saturday activity. Be prepared because it's packed. If you don't like crowds go early like 8. Great fresh donuts, coffee, vegetables, fruit, and flowers. There is a woman who sells natural herbs, wonderful pottery, jewelry makers, and fair trade booths. There is often someone playing music and places to sit and eat and watch people. If I... More

This is such a fun activity for the whole family. Food, drinks like tea and coffee, honey, clothes, jewelry, soap, etc are all the best!

The prices of the fruit and vegetables are ridiculous, but the artisans are awesome. We either get Thai food (pad thai and coconut rice with mango) or the TO DIE FOR apple cider donuts.

This market is on my must-do list every summer, but there are a couple of reasons why I didn't give it a full 5 stars. One of the main reasons is that it has gotten very crowded over the past year. It's hard to walk, let alone shop. Also, it is smaller than some other outdoor markets. That being said,... More

A long established open air market in downtown Wheaton. Dozens of vendors. Saturdays, April to November from 8am to 2pm. Farm fresh produce from local growers (Il. Wi. In. & Mi.). A real "farm to table" environment. Bakery items abound as do gifts, jewelry and flowers. Specialty meats, cheeses, eggs & organic foods are plentiful. Look for Ari's Flowers. Great... More

Fabulous vendors with lots of variety. Ride your bike on Prairie Path before stopping in to sample baked goods and fresh produce.

I always get my flowers here for any special occasion! Yuri's flowers are the best and are always so helpful. Baked goods, honeys, oils, jewelry and handmade items abound! Come and enjoy this market!

Beautiful Saturday market located in the heart of downtown Wheaton. Not to big, not to small, you can get around in an hour or two, plenty of variety to look at. The food items are incredible, we really enjoyed the pastries and there was a booth selling flavored vinegars that were fantastic. After you are finished with the market, there... More

The French Market is one of the best I have ever been to and I have traveled extensively! The flowers are gorgeous and priced very well. The fruits and vegetables are all fresh and the breads are to die for!! They also have jewelry, purses, soaps,etc. It's an experience not to be missed!

How much Chinese products can you jam into a French market and call them one of a kind? Great produce, great flowers, outstanding baked goods and glutton free goods from St. Honore. Everything else, blah.
