As a non-profit organization focused on food education and access, we are proud to partner with @lakeviewpantry! At the end of each market day, @lakeviewpantry collects excess, local, sustainable produce to feed those in need. Here's a special thank you to our farmers and Lakeview Pantry for their generosity and hardwork. Did you know we made their top 5 donor list in FY 2016?!
Real food from real people! We LOVE it when our shoppers interact with our farmers. At Green City Market, we believe in creating connections with the people that grow our food. Thank you @abflarn for these wonderful photos of your family with our farmers. Read below to see why Abbey and her family love our farmers. #Repost @abflarn (@get_repost) ・・・ Our favorite vendor? Each member of our family chose one! We love them all because they feed us year round with their local sustainable deliciousness. But if we must say why... @leaningshedfarm for their CALIFLOWER, tomatoes and Denise's ready laughter. #threesisters for their pea shoots, pecans and Tracy's sassy commentary. @crumbchicago for the most amazing bread and treats and that Anne remembers our young shopper. @mickklugfarm for being incredibly daring young farmers with the most amazing berries and fruit and Abby's extra samples. Our gratitude is immeasurable! #GreenCityMarketNFMW #GreenCityMarket #NationalFarmersMarketWeek #LoveMyMarket #puttingupfood

Check out them (ugly) apples at @earthfirstfarms for #NationalFarmersMarketWeek! #Repost @earthfirstfarms (@get_repost) ・・・ Ask us anytime about some of our ugly apples!
