How “Green” is the Green City Market
Wednesday, August 12
9:00 – 10:00 AM
Green City Market
(Information Tent – approx. 1817 N Clark)

Members only – free
Led by Village member Pat Terry, who’s been writing abut this unique, locally grown market since 2008 when she overheard a farmer telling shoppers, “Everything here is organic.” Not so then, but in 2012, GCM did become the  first market to require every farm vendor to obtain one of eight third party, independent certifications. We’ll tour the market, talk with three or four farmers to find out what they’re doing to produce sustainable fruits, vegetables, meat and dairy.  Afterwards, we can enjoy a self hosted breakfast across the street at Perennial Virant – which buys from Green Market farmers; shop the market, or watch a chef demo at 10:30 AM.

 

"Lincoln Park Village offers an exciting example of adult empowerment that I hope seeds itself throughout Illinois and the country."
