Chicago is a city that prides itself on "green space." This means more than just our system of parks and public spaces - it also means a wonderful assortment of Farmer's Markets operating from May to November each year. There are five such markets in the downtown area alone and twenty different markets all over the city that operate on a weekly basis (days of the week vary). The Hyde Park Famer's Market operates in Harper Court every Thursday morning from June 7 to October 5. It opens at 7am each week and has wonderful seasonal produce. You could very easily stop by one of these markets any day in the summer and enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables for many months.
