Basket in hand you stroll through the open air French Country Market at Canal Port, squeezing the vine-ripened tomatoes, adding some fresh picked strawberries. Stop by the pasterrie' for a baguette, some homeade cookies & muffins-a nibble now, some for later. The farmer's wife has been canning...jellies, jams, and honey! Add some fresh cut flowers, and head over to the artisan's selling one of a kind creations! Ahh, save a little time for those selling vintage must haves & unique curiosities. All this shopping works up an appetite-maybe a corndog (with mustard), Grundy County's "official" favorite. It is such a beautiful summer day, why not stroll on down the canal, double back, and head North to wander through the local shoppes, stopping at a nearby pub to wet your whistle! We know you had such a great time you'll be back next month for the 3 French Hens Country Market....& bring a friend or two! Merci

We are EXCITED to bring the 3 French Hen's French Country Market to our charming community, and we hope you'll join us at the Canal Port.

If you or someone you know would be interested in a booth space please contact as soon as possible as vendor spaces are going FAST!!!!


  1. This sounds like a wonderful and exciting thing to do just like in the old days when everything was going at a slower pace, and friends and families went to town to sell and buy all thier wares. The name is really charming and fitting. I know i am going to love doing this. Judy A

  2. The list is looking wonderful! And thanks for all the marketing work you're doing. This should be "the start of something big"!

  3. Enjoyed the market this morning, especially the farm fresh eggs, local honey, and baked goods.

    Fresh produce from local farmers would be an excellent addition.

    Any chance we'll be seeing this soon?
