The fall season is finally here! The leaves are changing, football season is in full swing and the weather is getting cooler. Naturally, everyone is getting the urge to go to fall festivals, corn mazes, pumpkin patches and all of the other fall activities there are to do this time of the year. For those living in or near McHenry, there is one place every family must visit this fall: Stade’s Farm and Market. This favorite attraction started off as a home farm and has now become one of the area’s most popular destinations. Stade’s Farm and Market consists of a farmer’s market and an entertainment area with several different activities including a petting zoo, corn maze, inflatables, zip lines, worship services and so much more!
At the main market on this farm, there are a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables to choose from. Families don’t have to worry about whether or not the produce is fresh because everything here is in season. The market also provides many fresh-baked goodies, salsas, spices, gluten-free items, soup mixes, eggs, honey, pie fillings, canning supplies, gift items and more. For those who would rather pick the produce themselves, Stade’s Farm and Market also has a U-pick option, where families go out and pick the fruits and vegetables directly from the farm itself. With this option, families can get the produce they want and have some fun picking it together.
For entertainment, there are many attractions to enjoy all year. However, Shades of Autumn, Stade’s Farm and Market’s fall festival that is held through the fall season, brings activities only available this time of the year. There will be a pumpkin patch, hayrides, mazes, pumpkin cannon demonstrations and even more fun fall activities for the entire family to enjoy.
Be sure to come out to Stade’s Farm and Market this fall for fresh produce and a lot fun for the whole family. Creating family memories here will become your new favorite fall tradition. To learn more about all there is to do at Stade’s Farm and Market and their operation hours, visit
