Best farmers market?

Michael | Jul 17, 2001 01:44 PM

After spending a rain-drenched lunch hour at the farmers market, I got to wondering which is the best? I know different stands are represented at different markets throughout the week.

I regularly shop at the Evanston market on Saturdays, the Federal Plaza market on Tuesdays and the Daley Plaza market every other Thursday. The Edgewater market on Thorndale on Saturdays is dissapointing.

My vote is Evanston--pretty complete, plenty of organic (and "unsprayed") vendors, plenty of interesting varieties, and it's not just full of cut flowers like so many other of the farmers markets.

Any other votes? Has anyone been to the Wicker Park market on Sunday?

I've provided a link that the city produced for farmers market info.
