“So crowded but so worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

Lot's of choices for prepared food and the makings of a meal, flowers and many types of other stuff.

There is a crowd here for good reason, high quality and many choices.

“A lovely way to spend Saturday mornings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Buy some coffee, browse the produce, buy some flowers, tip the musicians, enjoy the local art. It's a great way to start the weekend.

“Nice local market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I wish there were a rating between fair and very good. This market is nice and has quite a bit of variety - I would rate it 'good' if there was such a category. It has fresh produce, overpriced but delicious bakery goods, and a nice selection of fresh flowers. I could do without the same old/same old craft booths here and there, but it is definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

“Saturday Morning French Market”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The market is something that my wife and I go to every Saturday morning. We love seeing all of the produce that is there to offer. My favorite is the used book stall that really has a great selection of books. We also love the kettle corn, doughnuts and other baked goods.

“Too much to look at one time, but a lot of Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

On Saturdays in the Fall, a trip to Wheaton, IL would not be complete unless you stop by the French Market, in the middle of the downtown business district. The market consists of an ecclectic blend of farm produce, meats, breads, clothing, books, cooking items, jewelry, and collectibles. There is much to look at and it is packed into a parking lot near the railroad tracks and station. Crowded is not a good description, but it is still a lot of fun to stop and look, taste, and buy many of the various things that are displyed by the vendors.

This should be on your 'must stop' list when you travel to the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago!!
