French Market Holiday Boutique 2019

The Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Artisan Guild will host an authentic and lively French Market, November 8 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  and November 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at CROYA/Lake Forest Recreation Center (400 Hastings Road).

Shoppers will enjoy the ambiance and find wonderful treasures for themselves and others, all while benefiting our local artists and the community.

The event will feature live music and a vibrant market atmosphere with stalls brimming with irresistibly-priced creations made by the community’s most popular artists, including LF-LB Artisan of the Year, Mary Anne Donahue. Shoppers will find jewelry, soaps, cards, candy, hand-carved pens, paintings, fabric purses and much more.  Fabulous treasures can be found at our Flea Market area supporting Mothers Trust.

In addition, French baker Claude Bouteille will be on site serving sweet treats and café lunch from his Taste of Paris Café. Claude is a well- known, former Lake Forest merchant, who moved his business to Mundelein several years ago. No doubt residents will be glad to see him and taste his delicious pastries and creations.
