Chicago's front yard may soon get its own seasonal farmers market -- full of fresh fruits and vegetables.

The Chicago Park District is in talks with the company Bensidoun USA about opening a seasonal farmers market near the south end of Grant Park along Michigan Avenue. The park district tells ABC7 no contract has been reached.

If it works out, the Grant Park farmers market would be on Fridays and could open as early as Memorial Day and would run through October.

Bensidoum USA runs the French market at Ogilvie Transportation Center.
