Today D and I finally made it over to the Logan Square Farmer’s Market. There were about 10 booths, certainly not as big as the Wheaton Farmer’s Market, but still pretty neat. There were lots of veggies, flowers, Vella Cafe, soap and even wool! I look forward to more fruit at the market and seeing the other vendors.
Also at the market was a table set up for the Dill Pickle Food Co-op. I had never heard of it but it’s a new co-op that is opening a storefront about five minutes away from my apartment. The whole idea is more local vendors, better food and, of course, a neighborhood grocer. I’m so appealed by the idea since there are mostly Spanish neighborhood stores in my area or Strack and Van Til. Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods are farther away. So I am now a member of my first co-op! I’ll get my membership card in the mail in a few days. Yay!
