If you ever find yourself staring at an empty fridge in your apartment and wondering, “are there any farmers markets near me?,” then this list should be bookmarked for future reference.
Even if apartments are lacking for green space (a trend that's actually reversing in recent years, thankfully) or their own community gardens, these neighborhood farmers markets can pick up the slack and provide a steady source of fresh produce throughout the year.
Here, broken down by the day of the week they’re held, is the list of neighborhood farmers markets across Chicago.
