It you’re like me, you probably haven’t been to the Oak Lawn Farmer’s Market all summer. You can catch the final few weeks and pick up your fall cornucopia of apples, berries, veggies, spices, jellies and jams, honey, sausages and much, much more. MetLife is the special guest of the Oak Lawn Chamber of Commerce at the Farmers Market today.
Apples are best in fall, and something you know is grown locally. The Oak Lawn Farmers Market continues every Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 1 0.m. through October 16, and features over 30 vendors. It’s located at Cook and Dumke, behind the Oak Lawn Library.
I think I’ll take a secret morning off and head to the Farmers Market.
1967 Oak Lawn Tornado Blog
Patch has set up an open blog where you can share your memories, post photos and video about the 1967 Oak Lawn Tornado. To help get you started, I’ve posted all six known photographic images of the deadly F-4 twister that tore through Oak Lawn and Hometown on April 21, 1967.
The Oak Lawn tornado was one of many to touch down in the state that day, on what is considered to be the largest outbreak of tornadoes in Illinois history.
The tornado blog is open, which means that anyone can post on it. If you’re having problems posting, shoot me an email: email@example.com.
