Farmers' Markets and Big MACs

61st Street Farmers Market: Saturdays, 9AM-2PM

The 61st Street Farmers Market is finally here! From Saturday, May 17 through October 25 (9AM-2PM), the 61st Street Farmers Market will bring sustainably and regionally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, cheeses, bakery items, and more to all residents of Woodlawn, Hyde Park, and the surrounding neighborhoods! Each week, we will provide an update on our website about market happenings.

We will be welcoming new vendors and additional produce in the next weeks, as we move into summer and fruits and vegetables ripen and become available. Farmer Ron Bruno, a new vendor, will be bringing pasture-raised chicken, beef, pork, rabbit, and goat, Amish cheese, noodles, eggs, baked goods, jams and jellies.

We accept LINK cards.

Please support this community endeavor by becoming a regular market patron. The market is located on 61st Street, between Dorchester and Blackstone Avenues.
