The Wicker Park Farmers Market is presented by the nonprofit Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce with additional support from WPB Special Service Area #33. The market provides a space for local and regional farmers, food producers and processors to sell handmade and homegrown varieties of fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, meats, cheeses, flowers and more. It allows local vendors and residents to come together around shared interests of healthy food and a robust local economy. For more information, visit www.wickerparkfarmersmarket.com.
