Green City Market, Chicago's only sustainable market, has an extensive selection of conscientiously raised produce and other products. While milling around the park-turned-market, you'll have plenty of opportunity to snack on fresh crepes, visit with local farmers, and enjoy fresh flowers. Be sure to follow the crowd to chef demonstrations (10:30am) featuring some of Chicago's most famous talents. Club Sprouts allows children to taste a different market item every time they visit while the Edible Garden provides opportunities for anyone to learn more about the gardening process through free hands-on gardening workshops each month. During November and December the market moves indoors assuring comfort as you shop. Many vendors can't take credit cards, so carrying cash is optimal.
