Set along the picturesque I&M canal in Morris, Illinois, the 3 French Hens French Country Market is a picturesque open air market featuring over 100 vendors selling fresh produce, baked goods, antiques, and handcrafted items.

The brainchild of Traci Tessone and Monica Spence-Vogel, The 3 French Hens French Country Market was born after the duo tried to figure out a way to bring more visitors to the previously quiet area of downtown Morris in Illinois. Because Tessone and Spence-Vogel also had a passion for local produce, excellent foods and second hand treasures, creating a market to showcase all these just made perfect sense. It soon became obvious that both residents of their town and visitors from further afield shared their passions, and 3 French Hens French Country Market rapidly grew into the popular event that it is today.

Keeping things fresh, the 3 French Hens French Country Market is a seasonal affair. Vendors of all kinds gather just once a month through late spring to early fall, and each gathering feels like a party! The founders of this market can also be found every time, located under the shade trees touting their wares. On their booth can be found some wonderful vintage items such as European enamelware, vintage linen, chandeliers, carts, antique farming tools, clothing and more. These ladies are obviously proud of what they have created, and love to chat with visitors to find out all about their patrons, so be ready to spend a few minutes at their stand and be welcomed like old friends.

Throughout the market season the 3 French Hens French Country Market features special events, so each time the market runs it feels like an entirely new event. There have been Paris themes, a fishing derby, make-and-take workshops, live music and an annual farm-to-table dinner. Each market day is perfect entertainment for the whole family, and it is definitely worth returning for each market of the season.

The 3 French Hens French Country Market is perhaps not the venue to browse at the crack of dawn searching for collectable antiques, but thrift and second-hand enthusiasts are going to love it. There is plenty here that can be re-purposed and upcycled too, so creative types should also be sure to visit.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
