Two Events to Support the Green City Market - One Cheap, One Expensive

By Anthony Todd in Food on Jul 14, 2011 2:30PM

2011_7_15GCM.jpg Last Minute Plan - Tonight at the Bristol, the Green City Market Junior Board is hosting a "Meet the Market" event. There is no admission price, pastries and sweets are free (courtesy of Amanda Rockman, the Bristol's pastry wizard) and cocktails will be $11. Created by mixologist Debbi Peek, with spirits donated by death door, the cocktails include a Blueberry Ginger Mule and a Raspberry and Rosemary Sour. For those who wish to learn while they drink, Paul Thelan from Hillside Orchards will be there to talk about farming, fruit and markets. The event runs from 6-9, and will be on the second floor. 2152 N. Damen Avenue.

Next Week - If you're looking to spend a bit more, there are still tickets available for the Green City Market Chef's BBQ, the farmers market foodie event of the year. Thursday, July 21 from 5:30 - 8 p.m., join your favorite locally-inspired chefs for a heck of a party. Over 100 chefs will be serving bites and drinks, accompanied by live music and the beauty of Lincoln Park in the summertime. Tickets start at $100, and have to be bought in advance - either only or at the market. They're selling fast, so buy now.
