Austin Town Hall Farmers Market (ATHFM) is a farmers’ market in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. We are located outside the Austin Town Hall Park, 5610 W. Lake St Chicago, IL 60644.
Our objective is to create access to fresh produce, support the local economy by purchasing from food artisans and other businesses.
Austin Town Hall Farmers Market is an initiative of Austin Coming Together and their strategic partners and City of Chicago DCASE.
Our Vision: To create access for residents to patronize farms and local business owners by purchasing fresh, locally grown produce, prepared foods, baked goods, artisanal items, Vegan, and value-added products.
Our Mission: To bring the community a vibrant shopping experience where residents can access healthy food, build bonds with neighbors, and enjoy time outdoors. We strive to include in our market items that are original, handmade, unique, and designed or produced locally.
April 2012 Major Rahm Emmanuel announced 5 new Westside Markets. These markets will be located in areas that have limited grocery options, known as food deserts. The sites are near public transportation and will accept LINK cards.
This market has changed operational hands a few times since its inception. The last change was the April 2023 hiring of a full-time market manager. The managers sole purpose is to curate a market that addresses the needs and wants expressed from the area residents. Also to create a space that builds on community while providing programming for all ages.
2024 our name has changed from the Austin Town Hall City Market to the Austin Town Hall Farmers Market per DCASE as our status has changed to a community partner.
