LINCOLN SQUARE — The Lincoln Square Ravenswood Apple Fest is happening this weekend with a new online market for people who want to avoid in-person shopping because of the pandemic.
The Apple Fest Farmers Market runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the corner of Lincoln and Leland avenues.
The market will feature themed food, drinks and artisan goods from local vendors like Mick Klug Farm from St. Joseph, Michigan, and Phil Foster Fruit Farm from Huntington, Indiana, according to the festival.
Local businesses like Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits, Amy’s Candy Bar and Luella’s Southern Kitchen will be selling fresh fruit, vegetables and other fall treats.
Online, shoppers can buy apple-inspired packages featuring craft cider, food and other goods from local businesses. Select orders from the in-person market can also be preordered for pickup.
The online market’s packages will have a centralized pick-up location, except for food packages, which can be picked up from the local restaurants.
