There is good news in regards to the International market: they appear to be getting closer to having the new location further inside the market house up and running. It looks like it will have a welcome amount of space. Although it was kind of fun squeezing down the claustrophobic aisles looking for an unusual chutney or spicy ajvar.
The main shed was busy and spilling out into the second shed with the addition of Delvin Farms and a new meat purveyor from Kentucky called Emerald Glen Farm.
The Farmers Market will have an event on Friday, August 13 at 10:45am to celebrate the re-opening with free samples and giveaways. Mayor Karl Dean will be on hand and Mr. Mayor we'd recommend the goat curry from Swagruha, carnitas at El Burrito, wings from B and C, a po-boy from Nooleys and falafel at Chicago Style, all of which will then of course require a snowball for dessert.
