Encouraging collaboration between farmers’ markets and convention centers. PA 097-1015

(Effective January 1, 2013)

The Illinois General Assembly passed a resolution effective this year to encourage collaboration between farmers' markets and convention centers. Specifically, the Act encourages operators of convention centers throughout Illinois to provide convention center space to hold farmers' markets in inclement weather. Providers should offer this space at discounted or no cost when the weather prevents the market from taking place in its usual outdoor location.
