Rogers Park is the first of Chicago’s 77 community areas. The neighborhood is commonly known for its cultural diversity, lush green public spaces, early 20th-century architecture, live theater, unique bars/restaurants, and beaches.
If you are looking for something fun to do this summer, here are some of our local events and favorite spots.
Glenwood Sunday Market Every Sunday from 9:00 – 2:00 p.m
Sunday, July 11 from 9am-2pm
Glenwood Sunday Market kicks off a new collaborative partnership with the Loyola University Chicago School of Environmental Sustainability and its Loyola Farmers Market program for the 2021 market season. Glenwood Sunday Market strives for social justice through food access. In 2020, the Market continued to give away thousands of dollars in microgrants to food-insecure shoppers. It also partnered with Food Not Bombs for a weekly food recovery program that gave away hundreds of pounds of healthy food to neighbors at no cost. Vendors accept cash and most also accept credit cards, pre-orders are conveniently via the Whats Good farmers market app , and the market is pet friendly!
