Farmers market to open along riverwalk outside Trump tower

| No Comments

[Get ready for radishes along the riverwalk.]

Farmers market devotees can add another urban location to their shopping list this summer, and a swank one at that.

The newest city-sponsored farmers market will open in June along the riverwalk outside the Trump International Hotel and Tower, 401 N. Wabash.

The Trump Bridges to Bridges Market will be held on the final Thursday of each month, running at least through September and possibly into October, a spokeswoman says.

It will operate from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The later hours are ideal for urbanites who can't get to the markets until on their way home from the work.

The hotel hopes to host about 20 regular vendors, Nichols Farm and Orchard and Slagel Family Farm among them, says chef Frank Brunacci.

This is an extension of a one-day market the hotel held one drizzly morning last summer on its 16th-floor terrace.
