It is that pumpkin time of year! Gourds, squash, zucchini and pumpkins are all cucurbits. Time to embrace the cucurbits!

Sadly, many of the farmers markets end their season at the end of the month. The major markets like Green City and 61st move to their winter locations in November and buckle down for the cold weather months. Take advantage of the outdoor markets while they are still here. Get your final pizza of the season from the Nomad Food Company at the Green City Wednesday market.  Nomad has a new space at 4019 North Damen and check their Facebook page for pop-ups and seasonal events.

Tis the season of fests! Dumpling Fest 10/15 and Mac N Cheese Fest 11/15. The speaker-packed 2016 Food Tank Summit is November 16 at The Gleacher Center.  Get to the 2016 Pilot Light Feed Your Mind Gala tonight at Morgan Manufacturing. The Talking Farm’s Annual Farm Open House and Harvest Fest, the Hullabaloo is Saturday Oct. 22. where you can buy some pumpkins for your family. Embrace and enjoy Fall, bundle up and get outside, take advantage of the few warmer days that arise, shop outside while you still can and get to all the amazing sustainable food events going on this month.! Now onto the Monthly Local Calendar.
