LINCOLN SQUARE — The Lincoln Square Farmers Market will return next month with social distancing measures in place.
The tentative start date for the market is June 9, according to the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce. The market will be open 7 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesdays and 4-8 p.m. Thursdays through October at Lincoln and Leland avenues.
Once the market opens, shoppers and vendors will be required to wear face coverings. A limited number of people will be allowed into the market at a time to shop.
Additionally, vendors must wear gloves and shoppers will not be allowed to touch or handle any products. Vendors instead will assemble the shopper’s order and process payment. Eating and sampling food will not be permitted.
More than 20 local farms and vendors will have fruits, vegetables, flowers, breads, honey, cheese and other items for the 2020 market. Customers can view products for sale by clicking here.

While the farmers market will return in a different format, neighbors will have to wait another year to see the neighborhood’s free concerts in Giddings Plaza.
“In light of the safety concerns for social distancing and avoidance of large groups congregating, the 2020 season of the Lincoln Square Summer Concert Series has been canceled,” the chamber announced.
