Green City Market Returns to Lincoln Park

The Green City Market, the “king of Chicago farmers markets”, begins its twice-weekly schedule from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at the south end of Lincoln Park, at 1817 N. Clark St. The same hours apply on Wednesdays, and the outdoor schedule continues through the end of October.

Formally a nonprofit organization, it also welcomes those on public assistance not just by accepting Link cards, but by matching those purchases up to the first $15. “That’s really important,” Flynn said, “because according to the Greater Chicago Food Depository just $15 a week will move somebody from food-insecure to food-secure.”

Along the way, Green City Market returns to the West Loop June 3 and begins its inaugural season at the Park at Wrigley Field June 15. By that time, even Mother Nature should have agreed that spring has sprung. More at DNAinfo.
