It’s Fall Break Time…Glen Ellyn Mom’s Village wants to help with your Family Fall Bucket List.  This is the time to enjoy this spectacular season and all of the local establishments your family will love.  This list was previously published last October in Glancer Magazine and we wanted to share it again plus add a few updates that we hope you love.

We were just at Kuipers Family Farm and this is a must-add.  It is located past Geneva at 1N318 Watson Road in Maple Park, IL


We highly recommend their “made fresh for you” Carmel Apples and Cider Doughnuts.  The store offers everything Fall you can think of.


If your time is limited, think local. You can walk around downtown Glen Ellyn and see the storefronts decorated by local Girl Scout Troops. One of our favorites is to grab a treat at Blackberry Market and don’t forget to check out their October Menu, it looks delish.


After you leave Blackberry head across the street. The pumpkins are out at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, at 393 N. Main St. in downtown Glen Ellyn. Did you know that last year they donated $8,000 to PADS?! You can read about it here.
