I am obsessed with farmers markets. Whenever I go to one, I always leave with lots of fresh bread and fruit and flowers. And what is it about farmers markets that make you feel like a better, healthier person? Or is that just me? Seriously if I could have a day of yoga, reading and farmers markets, I’d be on top of the world.
Our favorite market here in Chicago is the Green City Market. Though, this city is great because there are farmers markets in every neighborhood. I literally ran into one the other day, walking out of my hair appointment in Logan Square (we live in Lakeview, another neighborhood). I love it. They are everywhere, and go on throughout the year. It’s ah-mazing.
Ryan and I woke up early a few weekends ago to go visit the Green City Market in the morning, before the crowds really got bad. We shopped around, I bought a mint plant and we dined on crepes (me) and a sausage breakfast sandwich (him).
I’m going to miss this Saturday’s market because I’ll be at home with my family, seeing some of my best friends who I haven’t seen forever and…having my bridal shower! However, I did get lucky because Appleton is having their first farmers market of the year! Woohoo! Fresh eggs and fruits! So excited.
If you’re ever in the neighborhood, I definitely recommend heading to the Green City Market in Lincoln Park. They take place in the morning/early afternoon on Wednesday and Saturday. Love it.
