Hop Off the CTA Train for Easy Access to Chicago Farmers' Markets

Glenwood Sunday Market next to the Morse stop

Farmers markets best serve their purpose when you can walk to one, but if you need to travel to a market, there are a number of options that are very convenient by CTA train. I missed my usual farmers' market on a recent Saturday morning, and unfortunately there's no Sunday markets in my neighborhood. So I looked up where the Sunday farmers' markets are and ventured outside my neighborhood to the Glenwood Sunday Market, because it was such an easy trip right next to the train. Here's a list of some other great options for farmers markets by train.

Nice place. I've only been there twice and it hooked me, now I am trying to squeeze some time to get back there for my weekly shopping. They should have a business website where people could access more information about them.
