open from May 1 to October all over the city?
I personally swing by the one in Northcenter every week to grab my weekly supply - I think that these markets are incredible. And did you know there was an Urban Farm, growing fresh fruits and vegetables, smack dab in the center of Englewood?‚ Not a Farmer's Market - A FARM.
