Glenwood farmers market on Sunday

People have been enjoying the new Glenwood Sunday Market at the corner of Morse and Glenwood, convenient to the Morse stop on the CTA red line.

The market supports and encourages organic and sustainable growing practices by bringing local farmers to the 49th Ward. All the food farmers participating in the Glenwood Sunday Market are located within 200 miles of the 49th Ward and use organic farming practices. The principle of "know your farmer, know your food," is the watchword of the Glenwood Sunday Market, which is striving to be the greenest market in Chicago.

For the first few weeks, the market will be located between Morse and Farwell. It will move to its permanent location between Morse and Lunt after streetscape construction on that section of Glenwood is done.

The market will be accessible to everyone in our economically and culturally diverse community. VISA, MasterCard, Link and SNAP transactions will be accepted. The market is offering a Market for All Program to those using Link and SNAP cards and will provide matching funds to make organic fresh produce more affordable for low-income families.

The Market will run every Sunday from 6/6 to 10/17, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
