My First Chicago Farmer's Market

On thursdays there's a farmers' market on Dearborn. Evan and I went to go buy some fresh produce for dinner and enjoy the Thai theme.

There was a good selection of just about everything except for meat products. Most of the farmers were from Michigan or Wisconsin, not too surprising, but I thought there would be more of a Illinois rep. Maybe I'll tally it fully next time.The sweltering heat didn't deter anyone - it was still packed.
