In 41 years of the Ravinia Farmers Market this is the first year in existence that all 40 tent spaces will be filled, according to Ed Kugler, who has been running the market for the last 3 years.

While Kugler hasn’t been operating the market for an extended time, he described that he first came to the market in 1978 when it opened when he was a sprout farmer. It began on Roger Williams Avenue but has been at Jens Jensen Park across from the train station for many years.
