The date May 14th has been highlighted on my calendar since I got it in the middle of December. The notation: “Opening of Green City.” Green City is the local farmer’s market and is basically my summer addiction. The thought of fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables grown by midwestern farmers and picked that very morning is what gets me through Chicago’s long, cold winter months (especially this year which was no picnic).
So, it is there you will find me at 7 a.m. on Wednesday. Unfortunately, I have an early appointment that day so I’ll have to get to the market when it opens, but it’s okay. Because for me, the market means the beginning of summer.
