First Pilsen Farmers Market!

Sunday, July 26, 2008, was the first Pilsen farmers market at the Community Bank and 18th Street and Halsted. Here are some photos from the event. The weather was perfect and the turnout looked good.

I bought cherries, blueberries, Echinacea (purple coneflower), Monarda (bee balm), and sugar snap peas. I learned that there is a beekeeper in my neighborhood with a hive just a few blocks away! I think I've seen her bees at my squash blossoms.

*Sorry I didn't actually post this sooner- I was waiting to download the photos from my camera.


  1. I love the farmers market! It's so nice to be able to walk a few blocks and help support local business.

  2. Awesome! I'm looking forward to its return in the spring. Glad you found the blog!
