Green City Market - Lincoln Park

Green City Market will re-open on Saturday, June 13 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Lincoln Park. View upcoming GCM Lincoln Park markets here

While we are incredibly excited to welcome you back to the market, our primary concern is for everyone’s health and safety. We need you to do your part while supporting our local, sustainable farmers.

All of us here at Green City Market, including our vendors, will be responsible for implementing the agreed upon plans to keep everyone safe while we help feed our city. The highest priority is everyone’s ability to practice and enforce social distancing and ensure 100% compliance by GCM staff, volunteers, vendors, and shoppers on all fronts. Our permit is contingent upon all of us working together to abide by the safety precautions and procedures we have submitted to the city.

Safe Shopper Guidelines

Farmers markets serve as the essential link between producers and consumers ⁠— growers and eaters. This weekend, we need you to help protect public health and our community by following new guidelines.

Pre-order for pick-up

We highly encourage shoppers to pre-order via our app powered by WhatsGood

Pre-ordering for pick-up at GCM Lincoln Park is a flat fee of $1.99 — by pre-ordering via WhatsGood, you can plan ahead and pre-pay online in one simple transaction to limit contact with vendors and make your farmers market trip more efficient.  

  • Patrons who pre-order will gain access to an expedited line into the market.
  • Once you enter the market, you will travel to each vendor stall that you pre-ordered from. Simply let the vendor know your first and last name, and they will hand you your item(s). Market maps will be available upon entry to more easily locate each vendor stall. 
  • You may also purchase additional items while inside the market.

Please note, you will select a pick-up time prior to attending the market. If you do not pick up your order by 12:45 p.m.; it will be donated. Not all vendors have chosen to use the app for pre-orders — please note, we want to be clear that while pre-orders are strongly encouraged, they are not required.

The GCM marketplace will open for market pre-orders at 8 am on Tuesdays. The deadline to pre-order is 5:00 p.m. CST on the Thursday prior to the market. Find more info about pre-ordering for pick-up at our Lincoln Park market here.
