As you make your plans for the weekend, don’t forget the Glenwood Sunday Market. This farmers’ market, situated on Glenwood between Morse and Lunt in the heart of Rogers Park, is one of the greenest markets in the City of Chicago, featuring organic and sustainably grown produce. All the produce at the Market is sold by the farmers who actually grew it within 200 miles of Rogers Park. The market runs until the middle of October every Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
When at the Market, stop by the 49th Ward Green Tent. Sponsored by my office and the 49th Ward Green Corps, the Green Tent features an array of information and activities for folks interested in making our neighborhood more sustainable and ecologically friendly.
This week the Green Tent will feature Chuck Templeton of the community building and sharing web siteOhSoWe.com. Chuck will talk about how this innovative web site provides neighbors a forum for organizing block clubs or planning a community picnic to sharing common household items and skills. The 49th Ward Green Corps even has its own discussion group on OhSoWe—http://www.ohsowe.com/local/groups/49thGreenCorps.
The Green Tent will also be collecting non-perishable food items and personal hygiene products for the organization Bin Donated. Also, if you ride your bike to the Glenwood Sunday Market, use the Green Tent’s free bike and stroller valet to so you can more easily shop for great local products in the farmer’s market.
After the Market, stick around for Pride North, a block party celebration in honor of Pride Month organized by the Glenwood Bar, 6962 N. Glenwood (between Lunt and Morse). Read about Pride North in the latest edition of Gay Chicago News.
I hope to see you Sunday!
