In 2014 they launched the Green City Market Cookbook which includes more than 90 seasonal recipes from the local Chicago community of customers, volunteers, farmers and Chicago Chefs.

Chicago’s Green City Market has been named one of America’s Top 10 Farmer’s Markets by USA Today. It has come a long way since its humble beginnings 1998.
