We're bringin' Chef BBQ to you! 🔥  While we can't all be in the park together this summer, we didn't want to miss out on connecting with our community of supporters and restaurant partners this year. Green City Market's Chef BBQ 2020 will take place via live stream so our community can come together while safely at home.

GCM remains committed to our partners in the Chicago restaurant community that help further our mission to promote a more local, sustainable food economy, who we typically celebrate each July at GCM's Chef BBQ. This year will be no different. GCM's Chef BBQ @ Home will feature cook-a-longs and demos from notable chefs — including Cedric Harden of River Roast, Paul Virant of Vie, Vistro, and Gaijin, and Seth Bradley and Ryan Van Voorhis of Nude Dude Food.

Register now for GCM's Chef BBQ @ Home on Thursday, July 16 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm CST — the event will be available to view for free to our entire community on live stream featuring demos from our featured chefs as well as engaging conversations with our chefs, select farmers, and GCM's Executive Director, a community call-to-action to give in support of GCM's mission, and more.

GCM's BBQ @ Home on July 16 will kick off a month of special Green City Market menu items at restaurants across the city intended to highlight local Midwest products from our farmers and drive support to our restaurant community and local farmers.

Guests and supporters of Chef BBQ 2020 would have raised at least $180,000 this year to support GCM’s nonprofit programs, including hosting our year-round farmers markets, in-school Edible Education, Link/SNAP-matching and more. Despite Chef BBQ’s cancellation due to COVID-19, Green City Market must continue to serve those impacted by its mission — give now to ensure local, sustainable food is available and accessible to all Chicagoans for years to come.
