“Designed to honor the seasonal arc of produce consumption that all farmers markets thrive on . . . the book also touts regional, fresh and the Midwest.” —Third Coast Review

Founded in 1998 by the late culinary luminary, author, chef, and entrepreneur Abby Mandel, the Green City Market is the venerable year-round farmers market held in Chicago’s Lincoln Park. Since its inception, the Green City Market has grown into one of the most popular destinations for finding organic and sustainable produce and products throughout the Midwest’s extensive farm-to-table culinary movement.

The Green City Market Cookbook is the first collection of recipes from the celebrity chefs, local farmers, loyal customers, and longtime vendors that make up the Green City Market community. Beautifully illustrated with full-color photography, the thoroughly tested recipes in this book represent a diversity of wonderful meals that can be created from the fresh, sustainable output of Midwestern family farms.

Chicago’s leading chefs, as well as other market regulars, have contributed recipes simple enough for the inexperienced cook but sufficiently enticing to satisfy the most discriminating gourmet. Organized by season, The Green City Market Cookbook provides eager readers with recipes that make use of fresh fruits and vegetables that come straight from the small regional farms that are the lifeblood of the farm-to-fork movement.

“This cookbook is a living breathing document to how we are connected to the land, the farmers, and each other. It will be your constant resource for the seasons, ingredients, and the most delicious ways to cook.” —Ina Pinkney, former chef/owner of The Dessert Kitchen Ltd. and cookbook author

“A collection of locally driven recipes with stunning photographs.” —Zagat
