Best of Chicago
Thankfully, you don’t have to give up your dream of fresh produce from friendly vendors just because the weather starts to take a dip in temperature. Before you know it, summer will have come and gone, so keep these suggestions in mind for the best markets in Chicago. These gems will keep your cupboards stocked and your belly full all year-round.
PILSEN COMMUNITY MARKET
At this festive market, you can find fresh food, unique crafts, jewelry and gifts. Do your produce shopping of local and organic foods such as meats, eggs, cheeses and baked breads (make sure to stock up for the next few weeks), and pick up a necklace for yourself as a reward for eating so well.
GLENWOOD SUNDAY MARKET
The Glenwood Sunday Market is normally held near the train tracks of the Morse Red Line station, but in the winter, it heads to the nearby Glenwood Bar. On Sundays between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. from June to October, you can visit all of your favorite vendors, rain or shine!
GREEN CITY MARKET
Visit Green City Market Lincoln Park, Green City Market West Loop or Green City Market at the Park to find good food at good prices. Test out the chef’s expertise, and support your local farmers, restaurants and businesses. During the colder months, head to the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum for the indoor season that gives market strollers the chance to get out without freezing their toes off.
LOGAN SQUARE FARMERS MARKET
Visit the Logan Square Farmers Market outdoors every Sunday from now through October, rain or shine. The Outdoor Market runs along Logan Blvd., between Milwaukee and Whipple, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. If you need a food market fix every week, then Logan Square will be your best choice during the winter months. Visit the winter market for fresh food for holiday feasts!
