DOWNTOWN — Chicago City Markets kicks off at Daley Plaza on Thursday morning.
The farmers markets are held at Daley Plaza, Maxwell Street and in neighborhoods across the city. They’re home to vendors who sell produce, flowers, locally made crafts, cheeses and other goodies.
There will be an opening ceremony for the markets at 9 a.m. at Daley Plaza. Shoppers there will receive free reusable bags while supplies last. The bags were designed by Mather High School students as part of a scholarship contest.
The Daley Plaza farmers market, the longest-running market in Chicago, is open 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursdays through Oct. 24 at 50 W. Washington St. There will be no market on July 4.
