Green City Market

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!

Maple syrup by the Wisconsin Fermentation Company.  You can see the sign with their farm info on the right.

This guy fed the goats that morning!  The black pepper goat cheese made for an incredible arugula salad with walnuts and strawberries.  Green City Lincoln Park Farmer's Market

Anyone else enjoy farmer’s markets?  How do you find the best produce?
