Sponsor - Chicago Farmers Markets

Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events [DCASE] of the City of Chicago.

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. The markets play an important role in serving underprivileged communities.

“Chicago City Markets provide access to fresh and healthy food to residents across dozens of neighborhoods, support local vendors and farmers, and offer some of the best street food in the city,” said DCASE Commissioner Erin Harkey.

There are additional markets operated by nonprofits, community groups and local chambers of commerce across the city and suburbs.

2024 DCASE has reduced its number of markets it assists with and also changed them all to be Farmers Markets instead of City Markets.
