Going Green with NPL

Do you have personal documents that you want to dispose of safely? Bring up to 3 boxes or bags to the Village Hall parking lot on Saturday, July 12 from 9am to 1pm. The documents will be shredded and the paper will be recycled. Sponsored by the Northbrook Civic Foundation.

Shop for locally grown produce and other locally made goods at the Northbrook Farmers Market every Wednesday from 7am to 1pm until October 8. The market is located at the corner of Cherry and Meadow.

Looking for recipes to make with your purchases? Take a look at our From Your Farmers Market board on Pinterest for ideas.
