Welcome

Welcome to Zeldenrust Farm Market, providing the most unique lines of bedding plants, patio pots, hanging baskets, and vegetable plants with many years of experience. Family owned and operated, serving the community and the greater Chicago Land area since 1969.

At Zeldenrust Farm Market we are in our fourth generation of providing vegetables to local residents and people of the city of Chicago.

Grandfather John & Tina started the vegetable farm on Stoney Island in the 1930s. They grew vegetables for the South Water Market and Campbell soup until they retired in the early 60s, when the farm was condemned and taken over by the Forest Preserve District of Cook county.

Don & Jan took the business to Glenwood Dyer Road in 1969 and opened a small roadside stand with a greenhouse and UPickField. We started doing Farmers Markets when Tim & Ruth were in high school in the early 80's. Don & Jan have since retired but are still very busy at the Farm.

Ruth has just celebrated 30 years of doing Farmer's Markets.

Henry Campbell and Ruth built the new greenhouse in 2007 and have been busy taking care of things at the farm since then. We have just opened our 50,000 SQ feet of greenhouse space and grow vegetables in the field May - November.
