  • The Northcenter Farmers Market is one of the oldest farmers markets on the North Side of Chicago, and we are excited to announce that the market will be returning for opening day on Saturday, June 20th, 2020. We look forward to returning to our newly-renovated Northcenter Town Square with a roster of wonderful vendors providing produce, pastries and much more. 

     

    We know the Farmers Market will be a little different this year, but what hasn’t changed is our commitment to helping bring fresh, local food to our neighborhood. The health and safety of our vendors and guests is our top priority, and below, you’ll find a list of what we’re doing to keep our Market safe and healthy for all.
