After holing up all winter, spring signals a rebirth in Chicago and it also signals the return of much-anticipated farmers markets all over the city every day of the week. The biggest, and most celebrated is the Green City Market, which takes place every Wednesday and Saturday in Lincoln Park near the intersection of Clark and Lincoln. There farmers, artisan food vendors, chefs and more gather to hock their wares. Here are some of our other favorites around town.
Logan Square Farmers Market: Set along Logan Boulevard every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Grab your produce or treats from many local vendors and then walk around the corner for brunch at Jam, Lula Café or Longman & Eagle. No car? Take the Blue Line to the Logan stop and stroll over.
Daley Plaza Farmers Market: What’s better than stumbling upon gorgeous fruits and vegetables in the middle of the Loop? Like Zsa Zsa, Green Acres has come to the city (or something like that). Pop out Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Daley Plaza at 50 W. Washington.
Lincoln Square Farmers Market: When you want to get your German on, there’s no better place than Lincoln Square. Support local farmers then support local bars and get some beers and brats. Each Thursday from 4-8 p.m. where Lincoln and Leland intersect. Need a ride? Take the Brown line to Western.
