CHICAGO — The Low-Line Market will cater to commuters in Lakeview when it opens for its second year on June 5.
Vegetables, fruit and prepared food will be available at the farmers market. The market will run Thursday nights until Oct. 16 at the auxiliary exit of the Southport Brown Line CTA Station. It will be open from 3-8 p.m. June 5 to Sept. 4 and 3 p.m.-sunset Sept. 11 to Oct. 16.
"We're about how the Low-Line Market connects our community with the people who grow and produce our food, while creating a unique experience for CTA commuters that improves access to wholesome foods," Heather Way Kitzes, executive director of the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce, said in a news release.
The event is part of a community partnership with Friends of Lakeview and Chicago Special Service Area 27 and is supported by sponsor DNAinfo.
