Farmers Markets in Chicago

Craving something other than take-out? Spring and summer are the start of prime farmers market season here in Chicago. If you want to eat healthier, support local businesses and buy seasonal ingredients, here are some farmers markets in Chicago you need to check out.

Logan Square Farmers Market

May — October

Since 2005, The Logan Square Farmers Market has brought farmers, vendors and patrons together for an open-air food market along Logan Boulevard. Whether you’re looking for fresh flowers, local honey or fantastic produce, you’ll find it at Logan Square Farmers Market. Their website has details like hours, a vendor schedule and COVID-19 information.

Green City Market

May — October

Green City Market sets up shop in both Lincoln Park and the West Loop, as well as a variety of programming and events. In their own words, they provide “a marketplace for purchasing sustainably grown food and connecting farmers and local producers directly to chefs and the greater Chicago community.” Their website has educational information on what’s available and fresh each month, and seasonal recipes for inspiration. 

Growing Home Englewood Farm Stand

May — October

If you’re looking to buy your groceries while supporting an impactful nonprofit, Growing Home is empowering healthy people and communities through their work. Their Englewood Farm Stand is open on Thursdays starting May 13 from 12-6pm. They also have a CSA — Community Supported Agriculture — program that directly connects farmers and consumers, and other ways to get involved with their vision.

Andersonville Farmers Market

May — October

Andersonville Farmers Market’s hybrid system lets you shop on site at their market on Wednesdays, or pre-order items online for pick up. Either way, you’re buying from a roster of local vendors who are passionate about what they do. Hours and details on their ordering system are all available on their website. 


After the last year, farmers markets in Chicago need our support more than ever. There’s no better way to celebrate the early signs of summer than to shop locally and eat seasonally!
