CHICAGO — Given the seven-day forecast this week, it seems spring is finally upon us. With the change in weather, naturally, come more outdoor activities, and an old Chicago favorite is set to return.

The city has released its full schedule of Chicago farmers markets, many of which will run from the spring through early fall. The earliest markets open in Chicago next month.

“The markets, managed by the City of Chicago will sell fresh fruits, vegetables, plants, and flowers—as well as other prepared food items—providing residents across the city to access fresh and healthy foods all summer long,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement.

Market season will officially begin May 12 with the opening of the Daley Plaza farmers market.
