As you enter the Bolingbrook facility Aunt Millie’s roadside Market is located right along Boughton Road in Bolingbrook. Aunt Millie’s changes with the seasons! Stop in to see what’s blooming!
During the Spring and Summer Aunt Millie’s offers flowers and ornamental grasses for your garden or landscape beds. Perennials flowers come back every year. Roses and hydrangeas can also be found under the canopy of Aunt Millie’s paver patio at peak bloom times for your selection.
All purchased are completed in the garden center main building. Yellow wagons are available for your plant selections. Please bring you wagon to the entrance of main building and leave it outside. Staff at the main counter will check your load.
Bring the kids! Let them experience a taste of the farm right in the neighborhood while you select additions for your yard or garden. Girls and boys – young and old – enjoy visiting Aunt Millie’s to see the barn and covered patio, windmill and straw shed. Take a stroll back in time when you see the old fashioned gas pump and antique Farm All Tractor that drives out in the Fall to the Pumpkin Patch.
From Aunt Millie’s you will notice the 1926 Santa Fe caboose and ore car. Work continues to retrofit the caboose into Frosty Dogs Ice Cream Caboose. Pictures are welcome, but no climbing on the train cars please.
When autumn winds begin to blow, Aunt Millie’s transforms into a Pumpkin Patch with pumpkins fresh from our farm in Minooka, Illinois. Now you can have the cool pumpkins direct from the grower. Giant orange, white pumpkins, warted pumpkins, Cinderella’s, carvers, pie pumpkins – you won’t believe the great selection! Kids of all ages love the mini pumpkins and gourds!
Mums – chrysanthemums – are a staple for Fall decorating. Aunt Millie has jumbo mum plants in all the colors you are looking for. The paver patio with ramps allows easy access for everyone. Load a wagon! Don’t forget the straw bales for your Fall/Halloween display. The straw shed is a great place for pictures too! Straw bales are available year round. Set your home apart with beautiful mums, unique pumpkins, gourds and cornstalks from Aunt Millie’s Roadside Market this Fall. Aunt Millie’s is tucked away for the winter right after Halloween. Be sure to pick up your Thanksgiving pumpkins and gourds before Halloween.
