Chicago farmers' markets

Chicago's Green City Market

Over the years Chicagoans have shown a greater desire for locally grown, seasonal food and as a result the popularity of open air food shopping has grown substantially. Today the city hosts over 30 Farmer Markets across many different neighborhoods with farmers from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin participating. Shopping at a farmers market can be a family affair for shoppers and farmers alike. It's not uncommon to see an entire family of farmers with children and adults alike helping customers, especially in the busy summer months when children are out of school.

Locations


Most, but not all, of the markets are sponsored by the city and occur on one day of the week with the exception of a few of the more popular markets such as the Green City Market. Each market is open from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., unless otherwise indicated. Over time the locations and days of some markets has shifted as the city is constantly working to provide balanced coverage to different neighborhoods throughout the week. The only days there are no markets open are Monday and Friday. While most markets begin on the first week of the month listed be sure to check your local market before visiting because a few begin in the second week of the month.
