Seasonal Special Happenings

Tremont Farmer's Market

When: Mon., Aug. 29 2011

Even if you think veggies grow in the freezer and fruit comes from a can, you can't help but be wowed by the lineup at today's Tremont Farmers Market. Now at the height of harvest season, its stalls are overflowing with tomatoes, peaches, plums, corn, and more. Wonder what to do with all that seasonal goodness? Check out the 5 p.m. cooking demo with chef Brian Doyle of Sow Food. Need some entertainment while you shop? Give a listen to folky singer-songwriter Beth Gatchell. If the sight of all that local food makes you too hungry to cook, grab some pizza, pierogies, crêpes, or sandwiches to eat on the spot. The Tremont Farmers Market runs from 4 to 7 p.m. today and every Tuesday through October 25. Just follow the sweet smells of the harvest to its home on Lincoln Park. — Cicora
