Load up on Fresh Food

Farmer’s Market season is starting up, which means I am going to start craving blueberry pancakes every day of the week.  But it’s cool, because there is a market to be found alomst every day…


Tuesday – Lincoln Square (by the Western Brown Line stop).  Awesome cherries, although honey sticks were nowhere to be found last week.


Thursday – Daley Plaza.  A huge selection of everything you have ever wanted from a farmer’s market.  I lived for this when I was on jury duty for 3 weeks last summer.  Cheap sunflowers & veggies.


Sunday – Roscoe Village (Jahn school lot).  Fresh bakery items that are awesome.  Usually a lot of gladiolas (gloadioli?) and wild flower bouquets. 


Sunday – Gold Coast (Orleans & Chestnut).  Held at the Cooking and Hospitality Institute, you can find all kinds of squirrelly little things you don’t find at normal markets.  My favorite was the orange and yellow mini tomatoes, great for roasting. 


… and tons more.  The Sun-Times has a complete list for you to find one that’s close to you.  You wanted to start eating better anyway, remember?
