It's finally time to get to the farmers' market! Starting Saturday, outdoor farmers markets begin, with the first session of Green City Market in Lincoln Park leading the charge.

Tomorrow starting at 7 a.m., Green City Market kicks off its season. The Chef Demo is at 10:30 a.m. and features Chef Edward Kim of Ruxbin.

After that, the next market to begin is the 95th Street Farmers Market (on Sunday) and the Andersonville Farmers Market (on May 10). Daley Plaza Market opens on May 11. After that, the Logan Square Farmers Market is back on the boulevard every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. starting May 14.

The majority of the markets get going in June, but there's plenty of great produce to be had right now. Expect huge piles of asparagus, radishes and greens of all kinds, as well as plenty of last year's carrots, beets and potatoes. Plenty of bounty to create a great spring meal!
