Summer Season

The South East Chicago Commission and Special Service Area #61 proudly present the Hyde Park Farmers Market, thanks to the partnership of Hyde Park Bank.  The new market reveals an entirely fresh look with all new logistics, giving residents and visitors a chance to shop on the weekends and experience an infusion of healthy food, lifestyles, arts and culture.

Shoppers will find fresh produce from local Illinois farms, freshly baked breads and desserts, beautiful plants, packaged foods, personal beauty supplies, and traditional farmers market fare. Several market vendors accept Mastercard and Visa, LinkUp and SNAP payments in addition to cash.

The market is in compliance with City of Chicago and State of Illinois pandemic protocols to provide a comfortable and safe shopping experience.

  • Each Sunday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
  • 1516 E 54th St54th Street and Old Lake Park Ave West

The Market began with the grand opening on Sunday, June 2 and the season continues through Sunday, September 29, 2024.  You are invited to experience the new energy, entertainment, community engagement and a fantastically-curated collection of vendors.

LINK and SNAP Match

In addition to the local products and vendors, the Market will introduce new pop up vendors, musical performances, children’s activities, local organizations, and healthy engagements.

The Hyde Park Farmers Market accepts cash, credit and debit cards, and has also partnered with the Link Up Illinois and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) program to offer additional payment options and access.
