What’s on Your Plate?

Yesterday, the library and Chipotle hosted a screening of the documentary film What’s On Your Plate?.  In the film, two friends investigate where the food they eat comes from. The answers aren’t always appetizing.  There are still places where you can find good, fresh food, such as local farmers markets.

Local Area Farmers’ Markets:

Downtown Evanston Farmers’ Market
Saturdays May 8 – November 6

Glenview Farmers’ Market
Saturdays June 26 – October 9

Park Ridge Farmers Market
Saturdays mid-May through October

Ridgeville Farmers Market
Wednesdays June 3-September 30

Skokie Farmers Market
Sundays end of June to the end of October
7:30 am-12:45 pm
