Green City Market's Chef BBQ is MY favorite summertime event in Chicago. I have been attending the Chef BBQ for years now, and I always have the BEST time. I am an avid supporter of Green City Market, as I love buying local, and having the comfort of knowing my farmers and where the food that I ultimately consume, comes from. Furthermore, the GCM BBQ includes participation from a bunch of Chicago's top chefs and restaurants, so it fits right up my alley by combing my favorite interests. GCM Chef BBQ really does offer the best of the best, featuring celebrity chefs like Rick Bayless and Stephanie Izard, among others... So buy a ticket and have a chance to mingle with them!
On Thursday, over 100 of Chicago's top restaurants provide tasting portions of local, sustainable, heirloom produce and heritage meats sourced from GCM farmers. Multiple Midwest brewers, distilleries, and wineries offer tastings of their handcrafted beverages with a focus on locally sourced ingredients.
