Why make dinner at home when you can spend the evening with friends and family at the Highwood Evening Gourmet Market. Recognized as one of the best outdoor markets on the North Shore! This is not your typical market. In its eleventh season, this family and pet friendly event features live music, dancing under the stars, freshly prepared delicacies from local restaurants and food trucks, and creative cocktails. Attendees can shop for locally made artisan breads, sauces, cheeses, pastas and sweets in addition to jewelry, fashion and art. To foster community spirit, each week we feature one of our local non-profit groups who make our community a great place to live. Come on out to see old friends and meet new ones. See you at the park!
