What inspired you to get involved with Green City Market?
I fell in love with the market and the farmers after working with Green City Market through the Chicago Cubs. I was given the opportunity to visit some of the farmers and tell their stories via video. I’m grateful for those opportunities and the relationships made through those experiences.
What’s the most delicious thing you’ve ever purchased from the GCM?
I love the black raspberries from Mick Klug Farm, the bread from Bungalow by Middle Brow, and the brats from Finn’s Ranch!
What’s your favorite GCM event?
I love the Saturday markets at Lincoln Park. I run from Logan Square every Saturday in the summer so I can be there by 7 a.m. when the market opens.
