Green City Market

It's doubtful that anyone passing by the Chicago Theatre in 1998 would have guessed that the handful of food stands clustered in the adjacent alley would one day blossom into Chicago's largest local, sustainable farmers' market. But Green City Market founder Abby Mandel imagined it would, and today her vision and decade of leadership is evidenced every Saturday and warm-weather Wednesday morning, when farmers and artisans from all over the tri-state region gather to sell their sustainable and seasonal wares. Now in its 14th year, the Green City Market has earned favorable mention in RedEye, in Time Out Chicago, and on ABC. Through the market, Abby's legacy lives on as the five-person staff and numerous volunteers aim to cultivate a robust local food economy and foster a strong connection between Chicagoans and local producers such as Growing Home and Pasta Puttana. The Heirloom and Heritage Preservation Project spotlights heritage livestock and heirloom vegetables with prominent signage on vendor booths in an effort to educate and preserve the food supply’s biodiversity. Regular chef demonstrations from such notables as Brian Huston of the Publican and Justin Martin of Uncommon Ground spice up the atmosphere and give shoppers inspiration on how to use their bulging bags of local fare. The market operates year-round, bathing in sunlight in warmer months before hunkering in the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum for winter like a bear with a taste for heirloom tomatoes.
