Come One, Come All to the Locavore Supper

62023-250.gifIt's not too late to join in on the Locavore Picnic Supper tomorrow night (Wed 9/21) hosted by Green City Market Chicago. (You do however, still have fork over the 30 buckaroos for a reservation to be able to attend). Held in the south gallery of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum (much like the indoor winter season of the year round market), the menu features local food from the Honest Meal Project, Limelight Catering and other featured GCM vendors (including noshes composed of elements from Mick Klug Farms, Genesis Growers, Green Acres, Three Sisters, Bennison's Bread and Kilgus Farmstead, to name a few). Join in on the food & fun celebration as GCM's annual Locavore Challenge comes to a close for the season.

The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum is located at 2430 N. Cannon Dr. The Locavore Dinner starts at 6pm Wednesday, Sept. 21. For more information, call the Green City Market office at 773-880-1266. Reservation tickets available online for $30.
