Farmers markets opening soon

The local farmers' markets will open in a week or two. A former Evanstonian, I've been a devoted fan of the Evanston Farmers' Market as long as I can remember, even driving upnearly every Saturday from the city where I have been living for almost 6 years.

My first stops there are organic purveyors Henry's Farm and Kinnikinnick Farms, followed closely by Nichols (who seems to be at EVERY farmers' market I've ever been to) and has an interesting variety of produce, but isn't certified organic. I also love the beautiful flower bouquets that Karen arranges individually for customers who stand in long lines to get them.

Last year I discovered the Green City Market in Lincoln Park and the wide variety of meats, eggs, and honey as well as produce. I would love to know other people's favorite vendors at Green City or other city markets.

What are your must-stops at Green City or other city markets? What's unique and special that you look forward to getting?
