Lincoln Square Farmers’ Market

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.

    That basil looks, as Napoleon would say, “Incredible.” The basil I’m buying looks all ragged and worn out, like it’s been doing coke and partying way too late at night.

    I’m going to go back and see if they have any good rosemary…. Dallas’ request. I think that when we’re cooking we probably use rosemary more than basil even.

    So, what are we cooking with rosemary? (just curious)

  • RachelleB

    Lots of things, but most recently, Dallas was making turkey burgers and added fresh rosemary and garlic chives. They were so good!

    Also, I’m back from the farmers market and they had some really nice rosemary. I also got an oregano plant.

    Yum…garlic chives. What CAN’T you use garlic chives for, I dare ask?!

    I look forward to seeing your newest food porn images with all of the dishes you make with your farmers market haul!

    Grant went to the Lincoln Square Farmers’ Market today. He brought back strawberries and peas. He must have seen this picture … I didn’t know he read your blog!

    Those peas are delicious. I kept opening the fridge and eating a handful. I also added them to every salad I ate last week.
