Join us for the 2018 Garfield Park Neighborhood Market!

 
Do you want to host a booth or perform at the Market? Fill out a
Vendor Application or an Entertainment Application and contact Angela Taylor, Wellness Coordinator, for details. The Garfield Park Neighborhood Market is one of the most unique, locally-sourced farmers market in the City of Chicago. Produce is grown by local gardens and urban farms in the Garfield Park Garden Network. Every tomato, cucumber, pepper, squash, onion, and bunch of greens comes from community gardens in our neighborhood. Market vendors also sell artisanal jams, pickles, honey, and pastries. The Market also offers live entertainment, food demonstrations, and programs for all ages.

Sponsor the Garfield Park Neighborhood Market! All sponsors will receive extensive name exposure and visibility both through social and print media and before the hundreds of patrons we expect this season! Donate online or fill out a Sponsorship Form.
