Thank you to all of our 140+ local restaurants and bars who supported our local farmers and artisans this past season by shopping the market. With the help of our volunteers, chefs are able to shop the market with ease thanks to our Chef Parking section at #GCMLincolnPark. With over 51 market dates at Lincoln Park this outdoor season, we are excited to acknowledge the top ten market attendees: @floriole, @quiotechicago, @daisieschicago, @northpondchi, @elskerestaurant, @publicanchicago, @_pacificstandardtime, @travellechicago, @cellardoorprovisions and @cindysrooftop. FYI - Cindy's Rooftop reached the number 1 spot with 48 visits to the market!

Plus, the first 200 market attendees will get $5 in market bucks, a reusable tote bag and recipes from AmBetter. Tomorrow's market is sponsored by @chiroone.

As @petalsfarm growing season is coming to a close, our #WCW goes out to farmer and owner Heidi Ong (center)! She is thankful for her helpful farm hands Raquel (left) and Hallie (right).

Catch them one last time at our #GCMIndoorMarket on 12/1 for wreaths and other holiday florals.
