Lincoln Square Farmers’ Market, Lincoln Square, Chicago
My Produce, Roscoe Village, Chicago
The Lincoln Square farmers’ market is located at 4700 N. Western (next to the Brown Line stop) and is open from 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Tuesdays. The market is a pretty decent size and is not too busy, since it’s not a convenient time to shop for a lot of people. I thought the selection was pretty diverse and I came away with a pretty good haul for about $20 – strawberries (in my yogurt every morning), portobello mushrooms (grilled for sandwiches), onions, salmonella-free tomato, and lettuce. Oh, and a whole basil plant for about $2.50. I swear the herbs I planted from Home Depot were double the price and half the size.
