One of the best summer events in Chicago, the Green City Market BBQ grand picnic will be held this Thursday, July 17 in picturesque Lincoln Park, with the fabulous Chicago skyline as a backdrop. This beautiful venue is ideal to showcase some of Chicago’s finest chefs, the who’s who of Chicago’s culinary scene. All dishes served at the BBQ feature items offered from the bounty of the market with nearly 100 chefs and restaurants creating culinary magic. In addition to food, locally made beer, wine and hand-crafted cocktails will be available.

Green City Market is a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization celebrating our 16th anniversary.  The mission of Green City Market is to provide a marketplace for purchasing sustainably grown food and to educate, promote and connect  farmers and local producers directly to chefs, restaurateurs and the greater Chicago community.  Green City Market values education about quality food and its source. We value farmers who take care of the land; the preservation of sustainably farmed land; a vibrant thriving community of local farms; and consumption of locally grown foods

Green City Market showcases sustainable practices.  From that first year in 1998 next to the Chicago Theatre to the present time, Green City Market has morphed into Chicago’s most vital farmer’s market that industry leader Alice Waters calls “the best sustainable market in the country.”
