Description

ABOUT AMVA

The event will feature around 25 local chefs preparing veggie-centric dishes with GCM vendor produce. We’ll also feature some of the city’s best bartenders, brewers, and mixologists pouring drinks made with GCM ingredients and local spirits. Attendees can sample offerings, chat with chefs, learn about GCM’s mission, and savor the taste of fall in the Midwest! Stay tuned to our event page for chef and beverage lineup announcements. A (Mostly) Veggie Affair benefits Green City Market’s Link Matching program, which matches Link and SNAP benefits dollar-for-dollar up to $15 for Link shoppers at every GCM market location. The program ensures that all community members, regardless of income level, are able to shop for fresh, local fruits, vegetables, meats, and breads that otherwise might be cost-prohibitive.

ABOUT GREEN CITY MARKET

Green City Market is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization with a mission to cultivate a more sustainable Chicago food system through farmers markets, edible education programs, and food access initiatives. We offer vibrant, year-round markets paired with engaging at-market programs including chef demos, youth activities, Link matching, and compost. GCM runs a Produce Box in Bronzeville where we sell local fruits and veggies on a weekly basis throughout the summer. GCM also works with local schools to provide hands-on cooking and gardening education.
GCM was founded in 1998 by Abby Mandel, a notable Chicago food writer who wanted to increase the availability of local, sustainably grown food. What started as a small startup with six farmers in an alley next to the Chicago Theater has since grown to include over 50 third-party certified vendors along with education and access programs that further create community around food.
