My family and I were able to check out the Green City Market during my week home in Chicago. It’s ah-mazing! The farmer’s market takes place every Wednesday and Saturday all summer.
It was cool to chat up the vendors; they all have signs on their tents with information on their farms and how far they travelled to get there. I snapped a few pics with my new camera. Enjoy – and go to a farmer’s market when you have the chance!
My dad made a strawberry rhubarb pie sweetened only with Stevia. It tasted like summer!
Maple syrup by the Wisconsin Fermentation Company. You can see the sign with their farm info on the right.
Families picnicking in the park!
Had to stop for a doughnut! The Toasted Almond was melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
The rear of the Doughnut Vault. I just love the colors and retro effect.
Green garlic and rhubarb
This guy fed the goats that morning! The black pepper goat cheese made for an incredible arugula salad with walnuts and strawberries.
Anyone else enjoy farmer’s markets? How do you find the best produce?
