🍀Happy St. Patrick's Day! We hope you celebrate by wearing - and eating! - lots of our favorite color today.

Tomorrow we welcome back @petalsfarm for the first flowers of the season, Chef @terhuneheather will lead a Chef Demo at 10:30am, and Club Sprouts will be doing seasonal tastings for the kids from 8am-noon. We will see you there!🍀 #greencitymarket #stpatricksday #supportlocalfarmers
Most people know Chef @terhuneheather from Season 9 of @bravotopchef and from her time in some of Chicago's finest kitchens, including 312, Atwood, and Sable Kitchen & Bar. She is now the Executive Chef at @trerivalirestaurant in Milwaukee. We are so excited to welcome Chef Heather back to Chicago for Saturday's Chef Demo at 10:30am where she will show off how to make the most of the season's ingredients by making a beet tart! #greencitymarket #chefdemo #topchef #eatlocal #cooklocal #shoplocal
The first tulips of the season are heading to the market this Saturday from @petalsfarm! We will see you all at the @naturemuseum from 8am-1pm! #greencitymarket #localflowers #signsofspring 🌷
Day dreaming of summer pies from @hoosiermamapie on this snowy Pi Day! #piday2017
#tbt to our first meeting with community leaders in the Bronzeville neighborhood! We are so excited to be introducing the Produce Box, coming this June. This collaborative program with Urban Juncture will enroll families from Bronzeville to receive produce aggregated from GCM's diverse group of vendors delivered to a refurbished shipping container moving in next to @bronzevillebikes! This program strives to address a lack of access to quality produce and will include cooking classes and community events! Stay tuned for more updates as the box moves into its new home!
Today, on #InternationalWomensDay we are particularly honored to work in an all-female powered office here at Green City Market. We are inspired every day by the many amazing women in our community of farmers and chefs who are transforming our food system. Did you know that According to the latest Census of Agriculture, nearly one million women work in the fields in the United States? That is almost one-third of our country’s farmers! Thank you to all the #womeninag who are feeding the world! 💪🏽
We cannot wait to learn all about reviving heirloom grains and heritage meats from chef Sandra Holl of @floriole, farmers Molly and John Breslin of @breslinfarms , Tom Spaulding of @angelicorganicslearningcenter , and Tremaine Atkinson from @chdistillery tonight at our second Come to the Table Dinner! Tickets are sold out but stay tuned for posts from the night. . . . #Repost @floriole with @repostapp ・・・ Our tiny mill is working hard to mill some rye. #sarahissmart
