The Farmers Market on Daley Plaza opened last Thursday and will open weekly through October.

After a long, hard winter, some vendors weren't ready to sell their crops on opening day of the Chicago Farmers Market in Daley Plaza. Only a third of the normal number showed up. As temperatures warm up and the markets get to full capacity, Chicagoans will likely see some changes. Community markets will aim to better reflect the neighborhoods they serve. And reusable bags will be given to customers to encourage them to bring their own when they shop.
