Huntley Farmer's Market Springs Back From Wet Start
Not too remarkably since Spring came early to northern Illinois this year, the market had a fair amount of fresh produce including rhubarb, onions and lettuce. "And there's some awesome flowers," said Read. "We'll have over 20 vendors when the produce starts really coming in," she said.
A display of artifacts by the Huntley Historical Society in Old Village Hall drew a lot of attendees Saturday, too. In fact, vigilant member Jake Marino found some 80-year old assessment records in a dank corner of the Hall's basement. They were a trifle "foxed," of course.
"These aren't foxed," laughed Marino. "They're mildewed and stuck together. We can't display them but we'll keep them. They're another record of what things were like in Huntley in 1935."
