The Green City Market is a 501 (c)(3) not for profit organization that operates a farmers market in Chicago focusing on local and sustainable farming practices. Green City Market is Chicago's only year-round, sustainable market.

Green City Market was started in 1998 by chef, cookbook author and Chicago Tribune columnist Abby Mandel. [1]

Green City Market operates as an outdoor market in the south end of Lincoln Park from May through October. Green City Market moves into the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum from November through April.

In 2007, Alice Waters named Green City Market one of the ten best farmer's markets in America.[2]
