The popular outdoor farmers market will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays through October at Mary Bartleme Park, 115 S. Sangamon St.

During Saturday’s kickoff, residents will have a chance to browse vendor stands selling produce and other goods, while enjoying opening day festivities, which include live music, a chef demo and free yoga.

Starting at 8 a.m. Saturday, Barefoot Yoga will offer a free one-hour mediation and yoga class. From 9 a.m. to noon, children can sample locally grown foods at Club Sprouts.

And for those looking for some inspiration in the kitchen,  chef  Sandra Holl from Floriole Cafe & Bakery will offer a cooking demo at 10:30 a.m.

Vendors at the West Loop location include: Bennison’s Bakery, Ellis Family Farms, Finn’s Ranch, Nichols Farm & Orchard, the Flower Garden and 1871 Dairy.

Green City Markets will also continue to operate in Lincoln Park, where the market has been hosted for 20 years.
