It may be hard to believe, but Easter is just around the corner (really!). What better way to celebrate spring than with an homage to the incredible, edible egg: a tiny, minimalist package that contains amino acids, vitamins and protein. Whether you prefer cage-free, vegetarian-fed, brown, jumbo or anything in between, you can take your pick of egg celebrations this weekend.
Chicago's Green City Market, the year-round farmer's market dedicated to sustainable and locally-grown food, is honoring the egg this Saturday, March 27 with a market called "Green Eggs and Ham". From 8 am to 1 pm at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, the market will feature chef demonstrations, a kids' Easter egg hunt and vendors that all promote the Seussian theme of green eggs and ham.
