IMG_6845IMG_6846Squash blossom

Berries are here, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries. One of my favorite vegetables, just in time for summer, cooling cucumbers are out now. New potatoes have been harvested and were on Nichols Farm’s tables at the Daley Plaza market this week. The favorite of many chefs, squash blossoms have bloomed with squash to follow in August. For those like me, who do not have a garden, I immediately zoom to Smits Farms booth for their incredible offerings of fragrant herbs. There is nothing better than the smell of fresh basil. What a difference the quality and vibrancy of Smit’s basil from the expensive and scanty offerings at the large supermarkets.

New events are added during the month and will be highlighted in red: Sunday Supper at Floriole 7/17 Stories From the Soil, Storytelling to Benefit Growing Home at Uncommon Ground Devon 7/20 Gather: A Farm To Table Dinner at Lincoln Park Zoo 8/12  Cochon 555 Heritage BBQ 9/11

Summer is in full bloom. Get yourself to a farm dinner, Slagel Family Farms, Mint Creek, Heritage Prairie, Outstanding In The Field, Hazzard Free Farms, and Angelics Organics Learning Center Peak Harvest Dinner is on the calendar for July 28.

Karl’s Craft Soups is now a vendor at the Daley Plaza Farmers market on Thursdays. His soups sell out at every other market he goes to but so far the crowd at Daley Plaza has not caught on to how delicious his soups are. Katherine Anne’s Confections are back at Daley Plaza. I always make a point to purchase her truffles in season. This week she had strawberry and rhubarb as well as grapefruit, mint and coriander.

Faith’s Farm Camp for Kids 2.0 is running this July. Spots are filling up quickly!

The mega-event that has 100+ restaurants and beverage purveyors participating, the Green City Market Chef’s BBQ is Thursday July 21. Tickets are still available . I can pretty much guarantee you will not leave hungry. The screening of the documentary “At the Fork” takes place on July 13, watch the trailer here. Many more events are on the calendar, enjoy this incredible time of year. When you visit the farmers markets you can enjoy the abundance of the harvest. Happy Fourth!!!!  Get outside and enjoy the sunshine, flowers and greenness.  Now to the monthly calendar:
