The Loyola University Chicago Farmer's Market seeks to increase access to healthy and sustainably grown fruits, vegetables, dairy, meat and prepared foods.
We offer a relaxing atmosphere where you can purchase fresh local food, and enjoy educational and fun activities during the market.
The Market is a direct result of a student project in the Loyola's Solutions To Environmental Problems (STEP) Food Systems course. Conceptualized and planned by the students, the Market's goals are to:
- Increase access to fresh nutritious locally grown and produced foods to community members in a densely populated urban setting
- To contribute to Loyola's mission to serve those in need by providing a community gathering place where fresh, nutritious foods are affordable
- To support small growers that apply sustainable agriculture and land conservation practices
- To support small producers with entrepreneurial spirit
- Provide a place where all can purchase local and seasonal foods to support the "farm to plate" lifestyle
Learn more about farmers' markets and how they are shaping our local food movement. Check out the Farmers' Market Coalition. The Coalition offers a variety of educational opportunities, support, and news about farmers markets across the nation.
