Not too far from us – a Divvy bike ride away – is the Green City Market, located in Lincoln Park, will be active every Wednesday and Saturday morning from 7 to 10 AM with hopes to “improve the availability of a diverse range of high quality foods, connect local producers and farmers to chefs, restaurateurs, food organizations and the public and to support small family farms and promote a healthier society through education and appreciation for local, fresh, sustainably raised produce and products.”

While many Chicago Farmers’ Markets don’t start until June, it’s easy to take advantage of these events that are happening now.

Happy shopping!
