Donuts at the Oak Park Farmer’s Market

If, like many Oak Parkers, you have ever attended the Farmers' Market, you may know us as "the donut church." The Farmer's Market moved to our parking lot over 35 years ago, and since then, Pilgrim, in partnership with more than 20 local non-profit organizations, has made donuts and served coffee every Saturday from late May through October.

This donut ministry has helped both the church and the greater Oak Park community over the years. We share the revenue with our partners and provide an opportunity for multiple groups to share information about their work with the larger community. We also appreciate the chance to partner with the Oak Park Farmers' Market to create a warm, vibrant community center every Saturday morning.
