find organic produce and restaurants that support local farms
8 years ago
http://www.chicagogreencitymarket.org/

Sorry to get this up so late! The restaurant listings are good all year and the market will be available through mid-October I believe.

For future reference (or to still take advantage of CSA's that may still have shares available): http://www.localharvest.org/

I've been getting the weekly box of veggies (& sometimes fruit!) from a local CSA called Growing Home Inc. - http://www.growinghomeinc.org/
They teach homeless & low-income people how to make a living... enriching their community with healthy organic produce and honey!
GH is simply wonderful... from the fruits & veggies to the people you meet at the market... to the lovely people who actually work on the farms they've got! You can meet them and see the veggies growing on their plot on the south side of Chicago and their slightly bigger farm about an hour and a half south of the city.

Feel free to write me with any questions about them or CSA's in general. Or you can also go to http://familyfarmed.org/ for more info about local... yes... Chicago-area farming and farms.

I'd love to see Chicago get more self-sufficient for our food production... wouldn't you?

Take care,
Ruth
