Food, Fun and Festivals in Buffalo Grove and Long Grove This Weekend.
Strawberries, strawberries, strawberries! I love this time of year when the local strawberries are ready for harvest. This weekend in the Chicago Northwest Suburbs, there are two events going on, each which feature this seasonal, delicious treat. The Long Grove Strawberry Festival, which runs Friday, June 25th though Sunday, June 27th, features entertainment, shopping and all things strawberries. On Sunday, June 27th, the long awaited Buffalo Grove Farmer's Market opens for the first time. No matter which event you attend (and I highly suggest you try and get to both) you're sure to have a deliciously sweet experience.
Long Grove Strawberry Festival
If you love chocolate covered strawberries, you will love the Long Grove Strawberry Festival. Around every corner you will find fruit smoothies, ice creams, strawberry donuts and baked goods.
According to the Long Grove website, there will be free live entertainment all three days at venues all over town and most of Long Grove's many shops, galleries, cafes, and restaurants offer variations of strawberry-themed foods, drinks, and merchandise.
There will be plenty of activities and fun for children at the Long Grove strawberry festival, including a variety of kiddie rides and face painting. Bring the family, bring your appetite and get ready for a great afternoon.

Buffalo Grove Farmer's Market
At long last, the Buffalo Grove Farmer's Market is ready to open. Be sure to stop by the Spray and Play parking lot this Sunday, June 27th from 7:30am to 12:30pm.
In addition to numerous farmers, the Buffalo Grove Farmer's Market will have a knife sharpening vendor who will come 4 times this summer, an Orchid grower coming in July, bakeries, meats, fresh flowers, plants, honey & jams.
There will free entertainment most weekends at the Buffalo Grove Farmer's Market and visitors will be able to buy fresh donuts after watching them be made! I'm planning on going early to take advantage of the best of the produce.
Whether you're in the mood for a day-long festival or a quiet morning of enjoying the sights and smells of the best product summer has to offer, you can definitely find something fun to do this weekend in Buffalo Grove and Long Grove.
