2021 is chugging along and Chicago Market is doing the same! As of our last month's pickup - we've sold more than $7000 worth of products from our group of farmers - and that number is growing every day! We've seen many, albeit masked, familiar faces at our monthly pickups and are excited to see you making us a part of your regular shopping.
Seeing as February's pickup sneaks in right before Valentine's day (February 13 from 11am - 3pm), we will be offering some curated Valentine's Boxes (including some of your favorite food and goodies from our farmers and specially selected recipes, cocktails...and more!) Barb and Chris at Pecatonica River Honey and Andy at Hazzard Free Farm continue to put thoughtful, awesome work into these curated offerings. More details to follow about these on social media...
But we all know Valentine's Day wouldn't be complete without CHOCOLATE! Chicago Market is excited to partner with Katherine Anne Confections. Beginning with the February pickup, we will be offering chocolates, marshmallows, truffles and more from Katherine Anne Confections in our monthly pre-order offerings. Katherine Anne has pulled together some of her favorite and bestselling items and each is more delicious than the next. From her beautiful, silky ganache truffles to decadent drinking chocolate, there are plenty of options for the chocoholic in your life.
Katherine Anne Confections are not only delicious, but they are committed to using fair trade cacao, and work with local farmers for their Jersey cream, midwest fruits, honey, and seasonal ingredients. As they say, they don't use anything that your grandmother wouldn't: no artificial flavors and no corn syrup.
Take a look at our SHOP page to see what treats we have to offer to add to your monthly Chicago Market stop.
See you at the Market!
