This week, we're highlighting one of our long-time supporters and volunteer: Toria Emas. As a 40 year resident of Lincoln Park, she first became involved with Green City Market when she met Green City Market’s founder, Abby Mandel at Les Dames D’Escoffier. Toria thought of Abby as her mentor. In 1998, Toria attended the first Green City Market in the alleyway next to the Chicago Theatre. She was also involved in the planning of the first Chef BBQ in 2000 and helped fundraise money to support the market in the early years. Read more about Toria on our blog.
Pumpkin season has arrived at our markets! #GCMLincolnPark is tomorrow from 7am-1pm with a chef demo by Carolina Diaz from @terzopianochicago and a free yoga session by @yogasquad. #GCMWestLoop is tomorrow from 8am-1pm with live music. Tomorrow's markets are sponsored by @chifairtrade, @lincolnparkchamber, @pharmaca, @getaround and @westloopvetcare.
Have you ordered from your favorite vendors with the @GreenCityMarket app yet? If you haven’t, download our app to browse and pre-order your favorite foods. Then just swing by the market on (market day) to pick-up your goods! By pre-ordering your favorite goods on the Green City Market app, you ensure that you’ll never encounter a sold-out sign at your favorite vendor. And while gathering information at the market is great, you can also use the app to learn more about your favorite food maker before you even get to the market.
The taste of locally grown grapes is second to none! Visit our market today at #GCMGallagherWay from 4-8pm to taste the early Fall varieties of grapes from @mickklugfarm, and other early Fall produce from Midwest vendors. We will also have a chef demo at 6:30pm with Martial Noguier and Taylor Grant from @bistronomicfood. Will we see you at @gallagherwaychi tonight?
Starting at 5pm at @gallagherwaychi tomorrow, we are hosting a Pie a la Mode Social with Abby's For Good and @hoosiermamapie! We're selling a seasonal slice of pie with homemade honey lavender or vanilla ice cream for $5. Stop by before we sell out at #GCMGallagherWay!
Along with our regularly scheduled Produce Box at @boxville51, our Chef Educator, Lisa Kalabokis, will be doing a Chef Demo at 5:30pm! She will be making a Summer Corn Salsa.
