It’s finally officially fall which means a lot of cold weather festivities will begin. Fall is my favorite season and hopefully, it’s yours too. It’s the only time Chicago is the perfect temperature where you can go outside and enjoy the festivities and not freeze. A lot of things are “in season” like fall flavors, pumpkin, spice, sunflowers, squash, and all the pretty earth-tone colors like oranges, reds, and browns.
The best thing about all of this is that you can find all these things at one of the many farmers' markets around the city in the Fall Time. Here are a few of my favorite farmers’ markets locations.
Federal Plaza Farmer’s Market
This farmers market is right off the Jackson Blue Line Stop and just a block from the Jackson Red Line stop. It runs on Tuesdays from 7am-3pm so it’s a good place to stop by between your Tuesday Loop classes.
This market is located under the Southport Brown Line and although it’s very tiny, it has a lot of unique vendors. They have a build your own bouquet vendor, flower truck, Michigan vendors and a lot of other unique products for sale. This market runs on Thursdays from 3-7:30 pm
Green City Market Lincoln Park
This farmers market is located at the south end of Lincoln Park. You can buy locally grown produce and all things fall for great prices here. It is huge and so much fun! This market runs through October every Wednesday and Saturday from 7am-1pm.
Even if you miss these, don’t worry because the Christmas markets will be here before you know it!
