A section of the city underserved by major grocery stores and other sources of fresh meat and produce will welcome a new market this summer. A project of the West Humboldt Park Healthy Community Initiative Committee (HCIC), the West Humboldt Park Farmers Market & Bazaar will feature locally-grown fruits and vegetables and other natural, holistic products when it opens on Saturday, June 5.
The market will run the first Saturday of every month from 12 to 4pm through October in the parking lot of Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago (NHS) at 3601 W. Chicago Ave. HCIC also says that visitors to the market will be able to partake in live entertainment, cooking demonstrations and other health-related resources.
HCIC is currently accepting vendor applications for the market. For more information, contact Alicia Ivy of the West Humboldt Park Development Council at 773-342-0036.
