EDGEWATER — The Edgewater Farmers Market will not take place this summer due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The local farmers market is the latest summer event canceled or altered because of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak in Chicago. Edgewater’s farmers market will not open this year, but two other nearby markets are still planning to hold in-person events.

The Glenwood Sunday Market in Rogers Park has been delayed after the city halted farmers markets from opening in May. The market will now take place every other Sunday beginning June 21 and will move to a new location to allow for greater social distancing. That location has not been announced.

The Andersonville Farmers Market is planning a June 3 opening and has partnered with the WhatsGood app to allow for online orders from market vendors.

Edgewater market organizers said they will post links to their vendors’ online ordering platforms as they come online. More information about the vendors can be found here.

The Edgewater Farmers Market usually takes place in the parking lot of the Broadway Armory on Broadway and Thorndale Avenue. The armory is being used as an emergency homeless shelter during the coronavirus pandemic.
