Glenwood Sunday Market
August 12, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Glenwood Sunday Market supports and encourages organic and sustainable growing practices by bringing local farmers to the 49th Ward. All the farmers participating in the Market are located within 200 miles of the 49th Ward and use sustainable or organic farming practices. The principle of “know your farmer, know your food,” is the watchword of the Glenwood Market, which strives to be the greenest farmers’ market in Chicago.
This season, Glenwood Sunday Market launches its “zero waste” initiative, an effort to eliminate landfill waste at the market. Over the course of this season, GSM and their vendors will work to ensure everything a shopper enjoys from the market at the market will be compostable. Glenwood Sunday Market will provide on-site compost disposal by Urban Canopy’s Compost Club, the same company that my 49th Ward Service Office uses for our composting.
The Market runs every Sunday, rain or shine, from June 3rd through October 28th, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Locally grown fresh produce, baked goods, and packaged foods are featured, as well as educational programs and fun activities for everyone. The market is conveniently located just steps from the Morse Avenue stop on the CTA’s Red Line, and there is ample complimentary bicycle parking at the market’s north end, under the Lunt “L” viaduct.
