The Wicker Park Farmers Market provides a space for local and regional farmers, food producers and processors to sell handmade and homegrown varieties of fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, meats, cheeses, flowers and more. The market allows local vendors and residents to come together around shared interests of healthful food, a robust local economy and neighborhood cohesion. Confirmed 2016 vendors include: Nichols Farm & Orchard, Seedling, River Valley Ranch, Garden Offerings & Petal’s Farm, Burton’s Maplewood Farm, Fehr Bros. Meats and Stamper Cheese.

The Wicker Park Farmers Market is presented by the Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce with additional support from WPB SSA #33 and Lowe’s Home Improvement. The market accepts LINK/SNAP cards and administers the Double Value Coupon Program through a grant from Experimental Station, allowing patrons to receive double the amount of produce when they shop with a LINK card.

The Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce serves as a cornerstone of the Wicker Park and Bucktown commercial districts, advancing the financial goals of neighborhood businesses through the creation of a dynamic economic climate, increasing the neighborhood's visibility and viability, and encouraging profitable relationships within the community. The Chamber administers the WPB Special Service Area (SSA #33), guided by a Commission of 12 SSA stakeholders who serve on active committees.
