Glenwood Sunday Market's mission is to make sustainable, regionally produced foods to our whole community. We strive to achieve that goal is by inviting local food pantries and soup kitchens to join us at the market.

We hope that you will be inspired to make a food contribution to our guests and help get more local food out to people who may not be able to afford it.

This week's guest is Housing Opportunities and Maintenance for the Elderly. H.O.M.E. helps low-income seniors in Chicago maintain their independence by providing home upkeep and repair, a shopping bus, moving assistance, and three affordable, inter-generational buildings.

We are also pleased to welcome ONE to the market this week as one of our Non-Profit Partners. ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of more than seven million people around the world taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Stop by their table in the middle of the market to learn more about their work.

Our Featured Vendor of the Week is Mindful Baking.

Everything Mindful Baking makes is Gluten Free and Vegan. That way, the most people possible can enjoy their products without worrying about diet restrictions or some of the most common allergies.

Mindful Baking focuses on savory Gluten Free and Vegan products at Glenwood Sunday Market and are featuring Blueberry Cornbread this week!

You'd think I'd be calm, cool and collected with a new market season starting, what with this being the 7th year for Glenwood Sunday Market. But you'd be wrong! 

 

Every passing day brings a new surge of enthusiasm, excitement, fear and worry.

 

It's going to be so exciting to see everyone! It's going to be the best market we've ever had!  But......Will people come shop?

 

What if there's drenching rain? What if the vendors get stuck in a traffic jam somewhere? What if there are cars parked up and down the street where the market is supposed to be? 

 

Here's what I know. People will come and shop. There will be a drenching rain. Someone's going to get stuck somewhere.

 

There will be cars parked. And we will have to tow them away. I will forget something important. I have no idea what. But something.

 

The Opening Ceremony (supposed to start at 8:45 a.m.!) will start late. And be too long (supposed to end by 9 a.m.!) 

 

And someone will be upset about something and someone else will be happy about something. And it will be another great start to another wonderful year of Glenwood Sunday Market. Looking forward to seeing you there!
