There is nothing like the flavor of crisp, fresh apples, along with squash, sweet potatoes, corn and other fall crops. But too often, the produce in stores has been shipped from across the county or even the world, using up precious resources while reducing the nutritional value through long storage and other practices. We believe local food is better for the earth and better for the community. Rebuilding the relationship between food producers and consumers is one of the most impactful activities we can engage in. That's why we formed Chicago Market. Community owned and controlled, Chicago Market will feature local, sustainable food from producers right here in the Midwest. But it can't happen without YOU. Do you want to be a part of the local food movement as a key stakeholder and Owner? Or do you just want to learn more about the co-op community and the store's new space in Uptown? Join us at the Chicago Public Library In Uptown on September 29th from 2-3 for an information session. This family friendly event is open to all. Hope to see you there!
