While Chicago may be a hub of urban industry, we don’t forget our farming roots. Our location in the center of the Midwest, the farm country, AKA America’s bread basket, provides Chicago with loads of local, fresh produce and some pretty rocking farmer’s markets. Not only does Chicago have a plethora of markets, but each is unique and fills a certain niche. Here are some of Chicago’s farmer’s markets and the typical Chicagoan you will find there:
