Farm..er roof to table: Chicago eatery says what grows there is eaten there

From the outside, it looks like your typical Chicago restaurant but high atop of Uncommon Ground in Rogers Park, things are anything but typical.

It’s where you will find the country’s first ever certified organic rooftop farm – 700-square feet of produce. Last year it yielded one thousand pounds of food including everything from peppers, cucumbers, eggplant, kale – as well as cilantro, beans, honey and tomatoes.

Everything grown up here, ends up right here as it’s whipped up into dishes and specials.

Rogers Park plans to add a food co-op in the not too distant future and will raise money for it at the Rooftop Farm next month.
