One of the benefits of Chicago’s location in the Midwest is the proximity to farms and fresh produce. Locals can scoop up seasonal goodies from neighboring farms around the state but the easiest way to score locally grown produce is to head to a Chicago farmer’s market.
Almost every neighborhood in the city has at least one farmers’ market, including downtown. That means no matter where you live or work, there’s always an option to pick up locally grown produce. Here are some of the city’s most vibrant and diverse farmers’ markets to check out.
Green City Market Wednesdays and Saturdays in the West Loop and Lincoln Park
Daley Plaza City Market Thursdays, in the heart of the Loop
Maxwell Street Market Sundays, on the Near West Side
