“Our Peak Season dinner is an unforgettable experience,” says GCM Executive Director Mandy Moody. “Each bite is bursting with celebration for our farmers’ bounty. It’s a delicious expression of the artistry infused in Chicago’s culinary industry and especially the focus our chefs invest into local ingredients and the Green City farmers who grow them.” 

For Bae Schilling, an owner of Mick Klüg Farms, “Peak Season Celebration is such a memorable event! It brings farmers, chefs, brewers, vintners, mixologists and the community together to appreciate local fare and incredible creativity.  It also provides support for GCM’s nonprofit programs. As committed GCM vendors, we are so excited to be hosting once again.”
