Local Farmers, Vendors, & Culinary Artisans

Green City Market is a marketplace for local, sustainable food that educates, promotes and connects farmers and local producers directly to chefs, restaurateurs and the greater Chicago community. Green City Market is proud to be the first farmers’ market in the country to require all of its farmers to have one of our approved third party certifications of their growing or animal husbandry practices to clearly reflect their commitment to the Market’s mission.  GCM is a producer only, and food only market.

Our farmers reduce the environmental and health impacts of pesticides by eliminating them or selecting effective materials with fewer known environmental health hazards. They treat animals humanely and strive to preserve the soil, water and wildlife habitat for future generations.
