Fresh start for indoor farmers markets this weekend in Wicker Park and Logan Square


What a way to start a Saturday morning than with a delicious gorgeous doughnut at the Wicker Park market

Both local indoor farmers markets open for the first time in 2019 this weekend. 


In the spirit of the Holiday, Steffy Sue became StElFY in Logan's market

Fresh produce, meats, processed and prepared foods are available at both markets plus lots more. Then there is the social side…fellow shoppers and vendors as well as an opportunity to learn about a community entity or organization at a community table. Even more fun are the performers.
