Green City Market opened a new outdoor location at Fulton Market in the West Loop. Known as Green City Market Fulton, 20+ vendors selling organic and sustainable produce, vegetables and other goods are expected to participate every Saturday through October at the corners of Halsted and Fulton Market (222 N. Halsted St).
"The Green City Market board and staff are thrilled and excited to have been recommended in the Fulton Market Innovation District Plan and that we have been invited to pilot a Green City Market in this neighborhood," said Mark Psilos, associate director of theGreen City Market. "We're hoping that we can use this as an opportunity to transition into a year-round indoor location in the area."
"Green City Market is a perfect market partner for the District. We have a 16-year proven history in Lincoln Park. We are excited for the farmers to have an opportunity to increase the flow of local food to the community," said Sarah Stegner and Vi Daley, co-chairs of the Green City Market board.
The expansion follows a record year for Green City Market's Lincoln Park location. The Lincoln Park location drew some 10,000 people weekly on Saturdays and 3,000 plus on Wednesdays.
Green City Market Fulton is open from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and there is public parking on the east side of the street at 221 N. Halsted for $6.
