Village of Orland Park's Market at the Park Returns for Summer 2018


The 2018 market debuts on June 7 and will be open every Thursday evening from 4 to 8 p.m. for eight weeks. The community is invited to enjoy shopping, eating, drinking, and taking in the sounds each Thursday evening at Crescent Park, 9705 W. 142nd Street, near the 143rd Street Train Station.

“The village is happy to once again offer the market,” said Trustee Dan Calandriello, chair of the village’s Recreation and Parks Committee. “Market at the Park debuted last year on Thursday nights at Crescent Park and it became a great family event.”

Attendees will again enjoy a mix of shopping options from food and artisanal vendors, as well as dine on prepared foods from local vendors and food trucks. Live music will be featured each week as local artists perform under the pergola at Crescent Park.

“We unveiled the new market format last year and it was a huge hit with all ages,” Calandriello said. “We had young families with kids dancing to the music and seniors who came out each week to walk the market, get a bite to eat and enjoy a nice summer evening."

Guests who attended last year’s Market at the Park will recognize many of the food and artistic craft vendors, along with a mix of new names and faces.

“The village is always looking to expand its vendor offerings and to showcase creative and unique sellers,” Calandriello said. “People interested in becoming a vendor at the market can contact the Recreation Department for more information. And, I send my thanks to the village staff for all of their hard work on the market.”

Free parking is available adjacent to the market at the 143rd St. Metra Station and at the parking structure on the corner of Ravinia and 143rd Street.

“Last year’s markets were a nice, family-oriented destination for lots of people,” Calandriello said. “It was great to see so many residents having a good time.”

Artistic craft and prepared food vendors interested in participating in Market at the Park can contact Doreen Biela at (708) 403-6266 or dbiela@orlandpark.org.
