Boots On The Ground – The Wicker Park Farmers Market, June 4, 2017 – updated –

This past Sunday I checked out the Wicker Park farmers market.  Parents take note: if you’ve never been here, there’s a huge playground adjacent.  Plan accordingly.

The market was spread along a stretch of walkway nearest to Damen, with the vendors alongside.  There were two produce vendors, the rest offering products.

Oh, for what it’s worth, the $4 donut the bakery sold (exclusive to the market) is not worth it.  Opt for something else.

Without further ado, here’s my report.

Vendor by the NE entrance

I noticed that the displays were split and the farmer was located in a corner, which if someone had a question, they would have to find the farmer then negotiate foot traffic to reach them- not the most ideal layout.  They did sell out of most of their greens after just 2 hours of operation [noted.]

 

 

The “BIG” vendor, Nichols Farm and Orchard

The dominant vendor was Nichols Farm and Orchard.  They had a two by four tent layout of 10’x10′ tents.  They sold veggies in 8″ pots (I only noticed the tomatoes,)

 

Final analysis: I’ll be back when the summer crops are in.
