It's Neighborhood Market Season! 

It's harvest time at the Neighborhood Market, which is being held on the second Saturday and following Thursday of each month, June through October.   

Applications are still available for both vendors and entertainment for the 2016 Market season.  We are looking for growers and those interested in selling locally-produced goods, as well as musicians and those interested in providing children's entertainment on one or more of the Market dates. Click here for the vendor application and click here for the entertainment application.   

We're always looking for Market volunteers! For more information, contact GPCC Wellness Coordinator Angela Taylor at or 773-638-1766 x21.
