Chicago City Markets: Daley Plaza

CHICAGO (WLS) -- It's another true sign summer is right around the corner. Chicago City Markets opened Thursday for the summer season at Daley Plaza.


Chicago-managed outdoor markets under one program, including Chicago's longest running farmers market at Daley Plaza, the historic Maxwell Street Market and community markets in neighborhoods across Chicago. Across the city, Chicago City Markets sell fresh seasonal produce, flowers, prepared foods, unique Chicago-made products and, in the case of Maxwell Street Market, rare finds and retail merchandise.

Additional neighborhood Chicago City Markets take place in neighborhoods across the city from Roseland to Lincoln Square, with new locations this year in Austin and Bronzeville. Many markets serve communities with limited access to fresh produce and areas designated low-income, low-access by the

U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA). This year, various City of Chicago-managed market locations will accept LINK and will distribute double value coupons with every LINK purchase in a partnership with Experimental Station.

The City of Chicago-managed markets opening in May are the Daley Plaza Farmers Market at 50 W. Washington St. opening on Thursday, May 11; the Division Street Farmers Market at Division St. and Dearborn Pkwy. opening on Saturday, May 13 and the Federal Plaza Farmers Market at Adams St. and Dearborn Pkwy. opening on Tuesday, May 16. Most city markets open in June. Maxwell Street Market operates year-round on Sundays.
