Area Farmers Markets Pop Up For 2015

andersonville farmers marketWith the warmer weather sneaking its way back into the air, our local farmer’s markets also come to life. They promise to give us some fresh local alternatives to liven up our everyday cuisine.

Andersonville Farmers Market has already begun and will be serving up some fresh picked delights every Wednesday until September 2. Located on Berwyn between Clark and Ashland, the market will be open from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. This wonderful market will be offering all the home-grown goodies you would expect, but also look for fresh baked delights like the incredible bread from Bennisons or yummy soup from Karl’s Craft Soup.  Also you will find local favorites like tofu products made right here in Edgewater from Phoenix Bean Tofu and pies from Andersonville favorite First Slice.

Celebrating 25 years, The Edgewater Farmers Market runs every Saturday from June 13 to October 17, 2015. The market is located in the Broadway Armory Parking lot, 5917 N. Broadway, at the corner of Thorndale and Broadway from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.  As you stroll along looking for the produce from area farmers, look for specialties from local businesses such as True Nature Foods and Metropolis coffee. New this year is a ‘Maker’s Tent’ which will be a place for makers to test, promote, and sell their wares.

Lastly is the Argyle Night Market which will be every Thursday from July 9 through August 27 from 5 p.m.- 9 p.m. Though just outside the borders of Edgewater, this market is put on by the 48th Ward along with the City of Chicago and Uptown United! This weekly party on Argyle between Sheridan and Kenmore serves up local produce, area delicacies from ‘Asia On Argyle’ and great live music.
