From June through October the Mary Bartelme Park hosts the Green City Farmers' Market. Here you can buy an assortment of fresh fruits, vegetables, and other homemade products. Due to its year-long schedule, Green City is known as Chicago’s most vital farmers market. From November through April, the market is held indoors at The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. On warm summer days, kids can cool off in the park's unique misting fountain after your shop. Food trucks are also frequently onsite. They sell summer-inspired, kid-friendly treats, such as donuts, snow cones, and ice cream. Visitor information: In the summer, the Green City Market offers two different locations in the city. Mary Bartelme Park hosts the Saturday market from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. from June through October. Green City Market is passionate about the entire community having access to fresh, healthy food from local farmers. They match Link Cards and SNAP benefits dollar-for-dollar (up to $15 per card, per market day).
