If you like farm-fresh produce, picked the day before and driven to Chicago from Michigan, you'll love this time of year at the Weiss Farmer's Market. This is just a sampling of what was available last Thursday. We were there at 11am, and several items were already sold out (who knew there were so many different kinds of tomatoes?) While the market also features fresh tamales from Pilsen, homemade jams from Michigan, delicious chocolates, colorful vintage jewelry at very reasonable prices, and organic health and beauty aids, the longest lines were at the produce booth.
The market is held in the parking lot at Clarendon and Wilson, and runs 7am to 1pm. For other posts about what's available, see here and here.
