Did you know that Chicago has a number of Farmers Markets that run roughly from May until October? Some are sponsored by the city, and some are independent.

For a list of all neighborhood markets, with dates, visit Explore Chicago's Farmers Market Page.

There's four downtown locations, two on Tuesday and two on Thursday. I wish they had them on Wednesdays, which is the day I'm most likely to be downtown.
