The Englewood Village Market kicks off 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at the Englewood Village Plaza, 5800 S. Halsted St. Neighbors can shop for fresh produce from local farmers and goods from Black-owned businesses every Saturday through Oct. 29.

This year’s market will feature chef demos, community resources and activities for the entire family. Music spun by local DJs is also on the roster.
