Green City Market shopping for Thanksgiving
Prairie Grass Cafe's Sarah Stegner
If you've got some leisurely time tomorrow morning, then make your way to the weekly Green City Market, which is in its fall/winter edition.
I'll admit that since I started going to it last summer, I haven't looked at a vine-riped tomato or squash the same again. And now that it's moved to the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum's North Gallery (2430 N. Cannon Dr.) through December, you can get in on the good-food action as well--just in time for a heart-healthy Thanksgiving celebration.
Also, the best part of the market are the cooking demos, and tomorrow you'll be able to catch chefs Sarah Stegner and George Bumbaris of Prairie Grass Cafe (601 Skokie Blvd., Northbrook, 847-205-4433).
The event starts at 10:30am, and if you get there early you might even get a chance to sit close enough to sample some of their yummy concoctions. Oh, and the best part about it is that it's free. The market's locally and organically grown fruits and veggies, of course, are not.
