A Guide to Farmer's Markets in Chicago For 2023

As temperatures finally begin to warm up around the Chicago area, it's almost time for weekend trips to the local farmer's market for the best local, in-season offerings.

In partnership with the non-profit organization Experimental Station, the city will be continuing its Link Up Illinois program, which allows SNAP and Link holders to be credited up to $25 per card swipe at various markets.

Full detailed explanations on the benefits can be found on the organization’s website.
