No one is more excited than us to be back at the Mill City Farmers Market! Our market crew this season will be run by Market Garden program staff: Julie, Summer and Jessica. The market youth crew will be led by our Market Crew Lead, Imogene, and youth interns: Krystal, Nuichi, Tony and Haset. Stop by our stand to pick up some fresh, youth grown produce, chat with our amazing interns and staff and browse around a vibrant market in a wonderful setting. Our booth’s return was already featured in the Mill City Times!
Our booth, located on the Chicago Mall in booth 103, will feature different items each week, but will include delicious, youth-grown produce such as: kale, swiss chard, beets, carrots, shallots, summer squash, shishito peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, radishes, potatoes, leeks, turnips, asian greens, salad mix, arugula, celeriac, fennel, a variety of herbs such as cilantro, parsley, lemongrass, thyme, mint and more.
We hope to see you there!

After a whirlwind summer with 58 teen interns for 10 weeks, Urban Roots staff was left to reflect and reminisce in the quiet over what a fun-filled summer we had!
With the academic session on its way, the Market Garden Program still has four fall CSA weeks left and will be selling produce on Saturdays from 8am – 1pm at the Mill City Farmers Market in September and October.
Needless to say, there is plenty of work to be done and fun to be had at our six urban gardens scattered around the East Side. After autumn peaks, the tomatoes are harvested, potatoes are dug, squash are picked, and our vegetable gardens will need some TLC before the winter! Fall tasks for large groups include taking down trellises, tearing out beds, seeding cover crop, spreading manure, and weeding one last time before the frost. We would also love individuals to help with canning. We welcome any volunteer teams who want to get their hands dirty or individuals looking to process produce!
