Winter Market this Weekend?

The Local Family road tripped to Milwaukee for Clincher sized kohlrabi and local oats.  Did you take advantage of our listing of local food quests, or did you stay closer to home to sample the fares in Deerfield or Logan Square.  We’d love to hear about your winter marketing.

    I did go to the Logan Square indoors market. I’ll putting up a short post and some pics on my site, http://www.greatlakesrealfood.com. The market seemed to have a decent crowd when I was there. Light on produce unsurprisingly, but I stocked up on grass-fed Beef from Black Earth Meats and Lamb from Mint Creek Farms. Also loaded up on sprouts/greens from Tiny Greens.

    Deerfield was hopping, and judging by the happy vendors, people were buying. In my random inquiries about how people learned about the market, more than one said they learned about it on the Beet. Thanks!

    The next of these Winter Farmers Markets is Sunday, January 24, 12noon to 3pm, at Irving Park Lutheran Church (near Belle Plaine & Pulaski). For a full schedule, go to http://www.localharvest.org/farmers-markets/M19510.

    Deerfield was hopping! Judging by the happy vendors, people were really buying, too. I made random inquiries about how people (not from the church) heard about the market, and several mentioned either The Beet or having heard Rob and me on Mike Nowak’s show or having heard the PSA on WCPT. Way cool!

    The next of these Winter Farmers Markets is Sunday, Jan. 24, 12noon to 3pm, at Irving Park Lutheran Church (near Belle Plaine and Pulaski). Hope to see you there!

    i really enjoy the logan square market, held in the lobby of the very decorative congress theatre. there is no heat, alas, and it can be bitter cold in there, but it feels like a community of like minded people. i run into folks i know; i chat with the vendors some to buy from, some just to see what they’ve got. this week i met beth, from chicago macarons, who is taking a break from architecture to bake. i bought smoked pork from jake’s meats; sipped tea from the new tea vendor (forgot her name); missed the artisanal cheeses from brunknow; and found irresistible the cannele from floriola bakery, one of my favorite sweets. parking outside is very easy , and afterwords a short drive away are the mexican vans for horchata and delicious tamales. it’s a happy time on sunday mornings now when i return will all my food treasures.
