Just because winter is fast approaching, it doesn't mean that you can't still find fresh, locally grown produce, fruit and food in Chicago thanks to Green City Market's indoor operations. Green City Market moves indoors to the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum at 2430 N. Cannon Dr. on November 8. Look for vendors toting organic baked goods, meats, poultry, fruits, vegetables, dairy products and more.
Save these dates, winter markets will be held: November 1, 8, 15 and 22; December 6 and 20; January 24; February 7 and 21; March 7 and 21, and April 4 and 18.
From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Chicago foodies, chefs and restaurateurs will head to the second floor of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum to celebrate sustainable farming practices and good eats, where it will remain through the winter months. The market will return to its outdoor location in Lincoln Park in May.

The organization recently published its first cookbook, The Green City Market Cookbook, featuring recipes from chefs, restaurateurs and market customers.
