Green City Market

Chicago's Green City Market is another prime example of a farmers market thriving in a big-city setting. This hot spot for fresh food is open year round on Saturdays and is also open on Wednesdays during the summer and fall. In addition to a huge array of food and locally made products, this market has cooking demonstrations by some of the most famous chefs in the city and other cooking and gardening classes taught by local experts and enthusiasts.
