If you are on the north side of the city on Thursdays you should check out the farmers market at Eli's Cheesecake Factory on Forest Preserve Drive. The hours are from 7am to 1pm. There is a free continental breakfast from 7am-9am with $5.00 purchase and every week there special events planned such as flower arranging and a live jazz band. I've been taking my kids for years and we always come away with a fantastic selection of fruits and veggies. The kids also end up with some sort of baked goodie... this week a flourless chocolate cake for one and a red velvet cupcake.
The farmers market runs until October 27th. 6701 W Forest Preserve Drive. Check out the Eli's website for a full list of dates and events.
