Expect the Unexpected at Market @ the Metra

The Village of Hanover Park will hold the Market @ the Metra event on a new date Saturday, September 8, 2018. This annual event is free and open to the public from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Hanover Park residents and neighbors will gather to sell their old treasures, handmade crafts, and new merchandise.
Find an unexpected treasure! In previous years the vendors have included crafters of handmade jewelry, soaps, stationary, but also new and used items. It has been a great alternative to having a garage sale for families wanting to give a new home to their used toys, clothes, and miscellaneous household items. The antique and vintage item vendors also offer a variety of collectibles, costume jewelry and old barn finds. Many vendors also sell new goods such as household supplies, school supplies, socks, ties, toys. Sellers of approved pre-packaged foods are also permitted.
Interested vendors are to contact the Clerk’s Office for information on registration and fees at 630-823-5602 or tclark@hpil.org. Registration forms are also available on the village’s website at www.hpil.org
