Farmers Market

Vegetables for sale at the Hyde Park Farmers Market, September 2019

After taking 2020 off, the Hyde Park Farmers Market will resume for the season on Sunday, June 13, running through Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

The announcement from the South East Chicago Commission and Special Service Area (SSA) No. 61 shows a change from the usual Thursday date and place, from Harper Court to the Hyde Park Bank Building parking lot at 54th Street and Lake Park Avenue West.

Ticina Williams, founder of event planning and party supply company Creativiti Custom Designs and Events, 6127 S. University Ave., is the farmers market's new manager.

Seventeen vendors have been confirmed, including Bani's Beets cold-pressed juices and Six Generations Farm, but a list is not yet available.

Mastercard, Visa and cash will be accepted. The SECC is working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to reinstate accepting the Illinois Link program.
