Green City Market

The outdoor farmer's market season began a while ago, but I went to my first farmer's market this past Saturday. Green City Market located on Lincoln and Stockton, about a seven-minute walk from my house was everything, everyone said it was. Totally met expectations, and for those of you that know me, that's hard to accomplish!

Cafe Ba Ba Reeba's Tim Cottini taught a large crowd the basics of a Tortilla Espanol and then provided free samples, which I couldn't wait around for because there was too much to see (plus I did the math, and they did not divide that tortilla into as many pieces as there were salivating people).

I walked around and bought sunflower spelt break from Crumb, prepared goat cheese and veggie quiche from Floriole, swiss chard and red & yellow tomatoes from different vendors and goat cheese feta from Nordic, among other delicious, fresh items.

Tonight, I get to enjoy my farm fresh dinner: sunflower spelt bread topped with yellow tomatoes, goat feta and red onions. Delish!

What do you love to get at the farmers market?


  1. I want to consume a burger and a slice of pie (I do not know the actual names of vendors) from the Lincoln Park farmers market at the new Zoo boardwalk. It happen to me once last year, I want to revisit the magic.

  2. It really is magical! Thanks for your comment!
