Orland Park's Market at the Park returns to Crescent Park on Thursday evenings from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m.  June 7 through July 26.

Market at the Park kicks off the 2018 season on Thursday, June 7 and will be open every Thursday evening from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. for eight weeks. The community is invited to enjoy shopping, eating, drinking, and live entertainment 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 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. Mark Rose will perform on opening night (June 7) and attendees can enjoy Andrew Diehl and the Nightmen on June 14.  Attendees can opt for dinner and dessert options, enjoy an outdoor shopping experience and stay around for yard games and free entertainment.  The market will include rotating vendors so be sure to check back each week online at www.orlandpark.org/market  for new product offerings. 

Two new features have been added to the market this year.    Cruise Night, a free event, will be held every Thursday during the Market at the Park where car and motorcycle enthusiasts can peruse rows of a variety of vehicles, new and classic. Yard games have been added to the market activities.  Attendees can enjoy games such as giant Jenga, kam jam and more, all free of charge.

"We unveiled the village's 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 on up to seniors who came out each week to walk the market, get a bite to eat and enjoy a nice summer evening."

Vendors will include some of the same food and artistic craft vendors, along with new vendors for attendees to visit.

"The village is always looking to expand its vendor offerings, planning 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."

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

"The markets are a nice, family-oriented weekly summer destination for lots of people," Calandriello said. "I look forward to attending with my family and partaking in another great time this upcoming season."
