CHICAGO — The city announced plans to host 25 farmers markets throughout Chicago this year, including at four new locations.
New this year will be the Fulton Randolph Market District/Union Park Community Market on Tuesdays; Devon Community Night Market and Ford City Mall Market on Wednesdays; and the Englewood/Anchor House Market on Saturdays, according to the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.
This year's Chicago Farmers Markets also will feature some community markets, which will not only feature the expected fresh produce, but music and vendors reflective of the neighborhood the market is in, said department spokeswoman Mary May.
The city hasn't announced which markets will be considered community markets, as vendor selection hasn't been determined.
Three of the markets will be night markets: the Fulton Randolph Market, the Devon Night Market and the Argyle Night Market in Uptown. These markets will feature live performances, arts & crafts and local restaurants.
The 25 markets have varying schedules, with some scheduled to remain open through the end of October.
