We just have two weeks left of our second outdoor season! On one hand, it seems impossible that the spring and summer have turned to autumn and that its time to go inside for awhile. On the other hand, it will be nice to have a Sunday morning or two when I get to sleep past 5:00 a.m.!
Another thing that's amazing me is that this is just the second season of the Market. I don't know about you, but I feel like I've been getting together on Sunday mornings with the...Read Full Post »

It is definitely embarrassing that we haven't put up any blog posts in nearly a year, but believe me, we have our reasons! Not long after last year's Winter Market Season began, I got a real full time job with another organization, so I took it, of course. Problem was, none of us realized that without having a person or two paying full or at least part time attention to the Market meant Season 2 got off to a bit of a rocky start.
Happily, I was able to return to the Market f...Read Full Post »

It seems like such a short time since that glorious last Indian Summer day in October- The last day of the Summer Markets. While the time has flown by, the pantry is most certainly bare, so it was with great joy and deep pockets that Lauren arrived this morning at the Glenwood Sunday WINTER Market. Thanks to our friends at The Glenwood, we were warm, dry, and everyone seemed in good spirits and in the mood to spend! We were excited at the thought of canned and jarred preserv...Read Full Post »

Yesterday was truly bittersweet. On that final day of our first season of outdoor markets, the air was clean and crisp, the sun was shining, shoppers were plentiful (as was the produce) and the entertainment stellar.
It is hard to put into words how gratefull we are to all the folks who have made the Glenwood Sunday Market not only possible, but a huge success! From Sheree, our fearless market manager, to Alderman Joe Moore and all of our fantastic sponsors, all ...Read Full Post »

It's hard to believe that we are in the home stretch of the market season. Over the past three months we've made some great friends (with people as well as dogs), and many familiar faces braved the brisk weather and came out to join us. Spirits were high and shopping bags full!
This week at Learn & Grow featured a delicous "taste of the market" where we collected lesser known, obscure and/or delectible treats from our vendors for you to sample and ask us que...Read Full Post »

Yesterday was a busy one at Learn & Grow, with the second installment of Compost in the Concrete Jungle. This time, we partnered up with Hume An from the Chicago Conservation Corps (who happens to also be a Roger's Park resident and vermicompost enthusiast) to provide all the materials to build indoor worm composting systems for free! I think it's safe to say that this lofty endeavor was a big success, and we rest tight knowing that nearly 20 homes in the neighborhood are comp...Read Full Post »

We had such an amazing turn out for all three of our foraging walks at the market this week with Roger's Park resident and wild foods enthusiast Milton Dixon. By taking a short stroll with Milton, we discovered several urban edibles that grow wildly in our neighborhood, including apples, berries, poor man's pepper, and close relatives of lettuce and tomatoes. Has anyone noticed that they are looking down "weeds" in the neighborhood more often, and thinking, "Hey, I can eat that!"?...Read Full Post »

Rogers Park's first Winter Farmers' Market, sponsored by the United Church of Rogers Park Social Action Committee in partnership with Faith in Place and Churches Land & People, was a smashing success today.
Baked goods, fresh produce, salsas, cheeses, grass fed meats and local crafts were happily purchased by Rogers Parkers and others from the city eager to buy local!
