Saturday morning, I went to the Green City Market which was located in Lincoln Park if you have never been to the market you definitely should add it on your list each week there is something different to try and buy as the seasons change. Green City Market is a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization celebrating their 17th anniversary. Operating as Chicago’s only truly “green” farmer’s market supporting and promoting local, sustainable agricultural practices, the mission of Green City Market is to provide a marketplace for purchasing sustainably grown food that educates, promotes, and connects farmers and local producers directly to chefs, restaurateurs and the greater Chicago community.
The market operates at the Lincoln Park location May thru October every Wednesday and Saturday from 7am to 1pm. I was able to pick up a few items such as a few purple haze carrots, salsa, tamales, and flowers from some awesome Midwestern farmers!
