Yesterday was officially the start of the outdoor Green City Market here in Chicago. While a wee bit chilly, it was still a great morning. Perusing the stalls left me feeling pretty darn grateful…and amazed! How wonderful and beautiful all of the fresh produce, flowers and even the baked goods looked!
It is a real joy when the outdoor market returns to the city. I always learn so much from the vendors and farmers. They are always so willing to share what they know and offer tips on preparing or using their products. A visit is always a lesson in something, and I love that! So cheers to future months of learning and tasting!
Not in Chicago? No worries! There’s likely a great farmer’s market in your neighborhood!
