NewsGreen City Market Awarded $100,000 Grant to Increase Visibility of Local Food Sector

Posted Jul 14, 2021

We’re thrilled to announce that Green City Market has been awarded a $100,000 grant from Food:Land:Opportunity, a collaboration between Kinship Foundation and The Chicago Community Trust funded through the Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust to increase the visibility of the local food sector in Chicago while improving the efficiency of the local food businesses run by Green City Market’s farmers and food producers. 

The funds will allow Green City Market to deepen support for its 50+ farmers’ and food producers through media relations, marketing, and merchandising strategies. 

In the long-term, this grant will help realize Green City Market’s vision of a future where sustainable farmers are thriving, a future where everyone — in the Chicago community and across the nation — knows who grows their food, how it's grown, and why this knowledge matters.  Food:Land:Opportunity’s investment will help Green City Market realize a future where all neighbors — regardless of zip code or income level — have access to locally-grown, sustainably-produced food.
