Lesson learned: don’t put the candle jar next to the tip jar. But if you happen to have money burning a hole in your pocket, we can help! Green City Market is gearing up for our year-end giving campaign. Every dollar counts and goes directly to our food sustainability programs that center around farmers, access, and education. Give at greencitymarket.org/support. Thank you to all of our supporters who came out to @lakeshorebeverage last night and to all our partners who made this event possible! @diningoutchicago @gooseisland @drinkopenwater Empire Cooler Service @fewspirits @alscoinc

Dear market family, we wanted to share this difficult news from @finnsranch. Please visit the link in their profile to donate to a go fund me to help his wife, Mitze, and children, Oliver and Ethel, aged 6 & 1. With a heavy heart we regret to inform you of the passing of our Best Friend Will Eckman. Most of you knew him from the Farmers Markets. If you ever had a minute or 20 with him you felt you had a new best friend. Will had a golden personality to make anyone smile. He was so loved and such an important person in our lives, he was not just a friend he was our dearest friend. Will was a huge part of our farm from the beginning. We wouldn’t be where we are at today without him. We are forever grateful for his love and dedication he had toward our family’s dreams. We are all blessed to have had a truly an amazing person in our lives. A father of 2 great children, Ethyl (1 year old) and Oliver (6 years old), and a devoted husband to his beautiful loving wife Mitzie. If you wish to send a card to his family, please mail it to the farm and we will make sure the family will get the card. Add a funny memory you had with Will; this will brighten Mitzie’s day and will be a meaningful keepsake for the kids. Eckman Family C/O Finn’s Ranch 13559 Coveney Rd Buchanan, MI 49107
