The nonprofit Rogers Park Business Alliance (RPBA) is proud to announce the 11th season of its Glenwood Sunday Market every Sunday from May 31 to October 25, 2020, from 9 a.m.- 2p.m. on Glenwood Avenue between Morse and Lunt Avenues, on the west side of the CTA Red Line.
Glenwood Sunday Market is a farmers market celebrating its 11th anniversary this year. A program of the nonprofit Rogers Park Business Alliance, Glenwood Sunday Market serves 52,500 shoppers annually, with a vision to create an equitable, ethical and secure local food system. Composed entirely of farmers and food artisans that work within 200 miles of Rogers Park, the market’s mission is to make sustainable, regionally produced foods accessible to the whole community.
For the second year, Glenwood Sunday Market will continue the Giving Sunday initiative in aid of its Food Access Program. Once a month, there will be a special Giving Sunday at the market when shoppers will be asked to "Share the Health" and donate to the Food Access Program, which fundraises to give SNAP shoppers a double-dollar matching grant, doubling their food buying power at the market. The dates for Giving Sunday will be announced later.
There will be no market on August 16 due to the Glenwood Avenue Arts Festival taking place at the same location.
All market vendors accept cash, and many accept credit and debit cards. Glenwood Sunday Market also has its own currency - tokens called Woodies - which can be purchased at the Payment and Information Table. Woodie purchases are dollar for dollar, and are accepted by all vendors. They can be purchased with American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa and LINK Cards (or other SNAP cards).
The market’s Food Access Program combats food insecurity in the Rogers Park neighborhood by providing $26,000 in grants and vouchers annually for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) shoppers. The market is committed to economic, environmental and social sustainability in Rogers Park, the city and region. For more information, visit www.glenwoodsundaymarket.org.
