LAKEVIEW — One of the tastiest signs of summer is returning to the Southport Corridor.

The Low-Line Market will open for its fourth year under the Southport "L" station, 3411 N. Southport Ave. The popular Lakeview farmers market runs from 3-8 p.m. Thursdays through Sept. 1, ending at 7 p.m. through Oct. 13.

At the 4 p.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday, the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce will unveil plans for the Low-Line plaza, a new public space where the market will take place going forward.

As part of the chamber's new First Thursdays promotion, Southport businesses will have special offer and sidewalk sales near the market during its first day.

First Thursdays will also take place July 7, Aug. 4, Sept. 1 and Oct. 6.

While the running list of vendors tends to change drastically over the summer, the current roster offers baked goods, tofu and tamales, along with more traditional farm-grown fare.

Farms like Fehr Brother Farms and Lyons Fruit Farm are returning to Southport along with neighborhood favorites like City Press Juice & Bottle and Lakeview Kitchen and Market.

Chicago food market staples like Stamper Cheese Co., Tamales Express and Phoenix Bean are also returning vendors.

Other vendors this year include Chutney Devis, Elsie Mae's Canning & Pies, La Farine Bakery, Pick at Garden Patch Farms and Windrose Flowers.
