This weekend marked the first day of work out in our Edible Gardens. Our friends from @theorganicgardenerltd and the awesome Saturday volunteer team were busy getting ready for a beautiful outdoor season of growing in the 5,000 sqft hands-on teaching garden. Follow along this season with us at @theediblegardens and be sure to come visit to see - and taste!- what is growing! The gardens are located with the farm-in-the-zoo at the @lincolnparkzoo. . #Repost @theediblegardens with @repostapp ・・・ Today was our first Saturday of the season working with our Saturday volunteers at The Edible Gardens in LPZ! We spent most of the day building new tunnel trellises for our cukes and peas. #theediblegardens #greencitymarket #lincolnparkzoo #springhassprung #organicgardening
Help spread the power of vegetables by sharing your best #eatavegetabletoday photos with your friends and @tater__tats will send you a free temporary veggie tattoo!

Use #eatavegetabletoday when you share your veggie-selfie on Facebook or Instagram, tag a friend to take one too and visit tatertats.com before May 1 for your free tattoo while supplies last! And be sure to come to the market today because veggies are out in full force!

Did you know that all funds raised by the Green City Market Chef BBQ go directly to support our education and access initiatives including our farmer scholarship program? These scholarships provide assistance to our vendors who wish to increase their knowledge and skills as sustainable farmers and help them purchase equipment that will support their operations. This support can be incredibly helpful for young emerging farmers wishing to grow! Head to the link in our bio and get your tickets to the hottest food event of the summer and show your support for small local farming operations. Be sure to get your tickets before April 22 to be entered into a raffle to win a room at @hotellincoln for the night of the event! #gcmbbq #supportlocalfarms #supportyoungfarmers
Who else is ready for #hotcrossbuns for Easter? Available at this Saturday's market from @crumbchicago!
What an exciting morning at the ribbon cutting of @parkatwrigley ! We planted basil seedlings with Club Sprouts, showcased our Chef Demo program through an interactive culinary experience, gave the community a taste of #abbyscrepesforgood , and gave a sneak peak of #greencitymarket vendor products you will see at our brand new #GCMatthePark location which opens June 15th! We couldn't have pulled it off without this amazing team of staff, volunteers, and partners. Thank you and cheers to another great season! #preservelocal #buylocal #eatlocal #community #farmersmarket #chicagofood #wrigleyfield #gocubs #parkatwrigley
