WHAT IS THE LOGAN SQUARE FARMERS MARKET?

Since 2005, the Logan Square Farmers Market has been an open-air food market and weekly community gathering. In 2009, it expanded its operation to include an indoor market. The Market is operated by Logan Square Chamber of Commerce, a tax exempt 501(c)6 not-for-profit community organization, of nearly 150 local businesses, whose mission is to advance the civic and commercial interests of Logan Square.

WHAT IS THE MISSION OF THE LOGAN SQUARE FARMERS MARKET?

The Market is a place where regional farmers and sustainable food producers sell their goods and build relationships with consumers, where residents come to see their neighbors, be fed and entertained, and participate in the Logan Square community.

There are three primary goals of the Market:
• To Build an Alternative Food System: The Market is an outlet for delivering nutritious, conscientiously grown and locally produced foods to all members of our community regardless of income level.
• To Foster Entrepreneurship and Support Family and Small-Scale Food Producers: The Market functions as an incubator for small-scale, local entrepreneurs, especially those in the food sector.
• To Build Community: The Market serves the community by raising the profile of the neighborhood, reinforcing a positive image of Logan Square, and creating a site for civic engagement and entertainment.

INDOOR MARKET SEASON

The Indoor Market will run Sundays beginning November 4, 2018, through March 31, 2019 at Emporium Arcade Bar of Logan Square at 2363 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647. The LSFM will be CLOSED on November 25, December 23, and December 30. Based on vendor response, the LSFM will consider planning one Holiday market on a date to be determined. The Market will be open for business from 10am until 3pm. (Emporium will be opening early for business on Sundays to accommodate us.)

Vendors are expected to commit to the entire season. If your business model requires an alternate schedule of participation, this must be noted clearly in your application, so Market Management may make the most informed decision regarding your participation and coordination of the schedule.
