Chicago’s North Shore Top Seven Farmers’ Markets

Farmers’ Market

There’s nothing like a good farmers’ market.

Of course, if you cooking’s not your thing it might not be your idea of nirvana, but for those who worship the altar of fresh fruit and veggies, there’s just something holy and sublime about making your way up and down aisles and aisles of farm picked food. Fresh markets are a seasonal treat, and the warm morning sun beating down on your shoulders as you hunch over the stalls in search of the perfect peach or pint of raspberries feels like the pure form of simple joy.

The experience of a Farmer’s Market overrides virtually any (even sometimes outrageous expense. And even if it’s really not any fresher than the produce in the grocery store it just feels so much better.
