What are your plans for this Memorial Day weekend? Let's hope that this summer weather finally shines through and we can do all the fun outdoorsy activities we've been planning for the past month ;p
Whether you're heading to a friend's cabin, throwing a big bbq, sitting out by the pool, or just having a social gathering with some friends: you're going to need tasty food & beverages! What better place than Lemon Tree Grocer to fulfill these needs?
Make sure you stop by the deli and see Yuriy for the amazing deals we have on Boars Head meat, and you can even ask for your favorite sandwich prepared right then and there! Plus, we have super sales on grocery items (only this weekend) that Brittney would love to direct you to.
If you're doing any kind of barbecuing- you must see Meat Mike for the best meat in town to slap on that grill, and then you should definitely feed the sweet tooth by picking up some pastries from Anne (we know those pictures have you drooling).
Finally, who can have a fiesta without the booze? Don't forget to see Ryan if beer is on the brain, and Melissa if you want to stick your pinky in the air while swirling some tasteful wine around those gums!
If this sounds like too much for you- just cater the darn thing! Let Stephanie know you want us to do all the work while you sit back and relax.
See; we have unlimited options for you to enjoy that extra day of fun...See you this weekend!

Who stopped by the opening of the Downtown Downers Grove Farmers Market last Saturday? We're hoping it will be a bit nicer this weekend than last, yet who's to stop you from purchasing items from your local amazing stores..
The Downers Grove Farmers Market is described as: "Open air seasonal community market offering more than 15 vendors selling fruits, vegetables, cut flowers, perennials, cheese, vinegars, bath/body oils, organic bread/baked goods, spices, crafts and many other items. This market is open annually from mid-June to mid-October."
Make sure to stop by the Lemon Tree Grocer tent, and say hello. We will have different items each weekend for you to purchase, so you will always be surprised! Also, keep us posted on the items you love, like, and want to see more of. We're always looking to keep you happy with the selections we have available at the Farmers Market & in our store!

It can be anything your little heart desires, and the winner will be chosen by our fans with the most "likes"
So, if you can't think of exactly what you should give to your mother this Mother's Day; at least give her a compliment on our wall. Then, you may even come out with the Grand Prize! If not, at least you took the time to write how amazing your mother is for all of Lemon Tree's fans to see!
We can't forget......Happy Mother's Day!
