Green City Market 2012

The creation of the late Chicago Tribune food writer and cookbook author Abby Mandel, the Green City Market started with just a few vendors in an alley near the Chicago Theater off of State Street.

By the year 2012, all of the farmers will be required to be certified by a third party as sustainable or organic. The market boasts 60 vendors and the farthest any seller travels is about 300 miles.

The market is located in Lincoln Park at 1750 N Clark Street and operates on Saturday and Wednesday starting at 7:00 AM.

I love going on Wednesday because that’s when a lot of the supporting chefs are there to shop for the week.

Bon Appetit!
