The 2014 Outdoor Farmers Market Occurs Every Sunday Through October 26th


The Outdoor Farmers Market will run every Sunday from May 18th through October 26th. The hours are 10:00 am - 3:00 pm.

The Market will take place on Logan Boulevard from Milwaukee Avenue to Whipple Street.

Food! Music! Entertainment! Socializing! Fun!

Have You Ever Wondered What Happens to the Food Left Over From the Farmers Market?

Wonder no more!



At the Indoor Market, volunteers from Zero Percent come to the Market each Sunday to collect donations of left over or excess foods from vendors.  Zero Percent is a food recovery organization in Chicago that collects surplus food from grocers, restaurants, caterers, and farmers' markets and transports it directly to local nonprofits. Besides simply saving good food and getting it to folks who need it, we also help companies claim tax savings from their donations, track their losses in detail, and inform their patrons of their commitment to zero waste.
