Winter Farmers Market

STARTS NOV. 12 | THE TABLE

With the colder weather, our local producers take their weekly market indoors to the Legacy Bank building for the season. Veggies, fruit and meat are still available for purchase, but don’t skip the baked goods, soups and jams, too.

Model railroading is what Trainfest is all about. For enthusiasts, or just the curious, the show has hundreds of booths that feature train manufacturers, retailers and activities for kids. For even more train fun, consider one of the workshops or seminars.

The season’s just starting to heat up. Head to Fiserv Forum for one of this month’s home games. We expect the Chicago Bulls matchup (Nov. 23) to pack the house.

Holiday Shopping

MULTIPLE DATES | MULTIPLE LOCATIONS

It’s time to start gift shopping, and perhaps the most fun way to get moving is by taking advantage of holiday market season, which is kicking off this month. A few (of many) options include the Holiday Folk Fair International (Nov. 18-20), American Club’s Holiday Market (Nov. 18-20) and German Christmas Market (Nov. 23-27).
