Green City Market Fulton Opens Saturday, August 9
Green City Market, Chicago's premiere sustainable farmer's market, opens its new additional outdoor
at Fulton Market this Saturday, August 9. To be known as Green City
Market Fulton, hours are 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through October
at the corners of Halsted and Fulton Market streets in the parking lot
at 222 N. Halsted St. There is public parking on the east side of the
street at 221 N. Halsted for $6.
Twenty vendors selling organic and sustainable produce, vegetables
and other goods are expected at the first market. The growing Fulton
Market District/West Loop is one of Chicago's most popular and fastest
growing neighborhoods. "The Green City Market board and staff are
thrilled and excited to have been recommended in the Fulton Market
Innovation District Plan and that we have been invited to pilot a Green
City Market in this neighborhood," said Mark Psilos, associate director
of the Green City Market. "We're hoping that we can use this as an
opportunity to transition into a year-round indoor location in the
City Market is a perfect market partner for the District. We have a
16-year proven history in Lincoln Park. We are excited for the
farmers to have an opportunity to increase the flow of local food to the
community," said Sarah Stegner and Vi Daley, co-chairs of the Green
City Market board.
Confirmed vendors include: Amazing Shrimp
Bennison's Bakery Brunkow Cheese Bushel & Peck's Ellis Family Farms Genesis Growers Green Acres Heartland Meats Hillside Orchards Iron Creek Organics Leaning Shed Farm Mick Klug Farm Mint Creek Nichols Farm & Orchard Nordic Creamery Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery River Valley Ranch and Kitchens Seedling The Flower Garden
The mission of Green City Market is to improve the availability of a diverse range of high quality foods,
connecting local producers and farmers to chefs, restaurateurs, food
organizations and the public, and supporting small family farms while
promoting a healthier society through education and appreciation for
local, fresh, sustainably raised produce and products.
Green City Market has been a destination for locals and
visitors to Chicago since its inception in 1998. Last year, Green City
Market's Lincoln Park location broke attendance records, drawing some
10,000 people weekly on Saturdays and 3,000 plus on Wednesdays.
Green City Market has consistently been named in the top 10 of the
nation's best farmers markets by national publications such as Bon
Appetit, Travel & Leisure, Forbes, Shape, CNN, Huffington Post and
US News, among others. The organization recently published its first
cookbook, The Green City Market Cookbook, featuring recipes from chefs,
restaurateurs and market customers. The cookbook is available at both
Green City Market locations as well as on its website.
