The Green City Market in Lincoln Park – a favorite of local chefs and home cooks alike – opens Wednesday, May 14. On Saturday, May 17, the Green City Market will hold a rally for sustainable local farming that will also honor its 10th anniversary. TV journalist and founder of Tallgrass Beef Bill Kurtis will serve as master of ceremonies alongside chef representative .
Most of the neighborhood markets don't officially open until June, although the Nettlehorst French Market in east Lakeview (Broadway and Melrose) has been open for several weeks. Soon, there will enough markets open to shop a different one every day of the week. We recommend visiting as many as possible.
