In 2017, we had 130+ restaurants and bars shop directly with our farmers at our #GCMLincolnPark market. Thanks to our Chef Parking section, chefs can shop the market with ease to make sure the best produce and products makes it to their customers every night. Here are the top 10 visitors we had. FYI: @cellardoorprovisions visited 49 TIMES!!! . . . Thank you @vierestaurant, @daisieschicago, @elskerestaurant, @travellechicago, @woodchicago, @spiaggiachicago, @nicoosteria, @greenriverchi, @lulacafe and @cellardoorprovisions for supporting our farmers and market.
Reminder: there is no Indoor Market today. We return to the @naturemuseum on Feb 3rd! Tip: buy apples from @ellisfamilyfarms in bulk and refrigerate them. They will last you all season long.
We are so excited for our first Come to the Table Dinner on Tuesday, and it wouldn’t be possible without our partners: @candid_wines, @chdistillery, @cruzblancachi and @gothamgreens!
#tbt: close your eyes and envision tasting the first berry of the season. We wish we were there too.
We believe that good habits start when we’re young. We’re excited to continue teaching STEM topics to Manierre Elementary & DePaul College Prep through our Edible Education programs into the new year.

The best habits start when they’re young. Educate the next generation of sustainable eaters and conscious shoppers at our Club Sprouts program at every market. Club Sprouts has kids activities centered around healthy and sustainable food.
We’re super excited to have our speakers at our first Come to the Table Dinner: CHANGE: Chef @rick_bayless ; Harry Carr, Owner of @mintcreek_il ; Katie Johnson & Clare Johnson, Co-Presidents of @slowfoodchicago; Joel Smith, Board Member of Slow Food USA. Beverages will be provided by @chdistillery and @candid_wines . Unfortunately, tickets to this dinner are sold out. Tickets to CONNECT are still available on Eventbrite.
WE’RE BACK! Our first Indoor Market of 2018 is tomorrow at the @naturemuseum from 8am-1pm. Sponsored by @getaround. Also, if you thought this was ginger, you were fooled. This is FRESH TUMERIC from @nicholsfarmandorchard. It tastes similar to a spiced, fresh carrot.
#tbt to #GCMWestLoop! How we long for a warm summer Saturday market at Mary Bartelme Park 😭.
