Logan Square Chamber of Commerce Indoor Farmers Market (LSFM) will open its third winter market with more than 30 vendors on Sun., Nov. 15, at the same outdoor location as the summer market, along Logan Blvd. from Milwaukee Ave. to Whipple. Hours: 9 to 10 a.m. for high risk shoppers and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for all other shoppers.

Indicating competitor complaints from other tenants in "The Fields" at the Diversey and Pulaski site, New York property owners Knickpoint Ventures, who offered LSFM the space, ousted them after two weeks into the new indoor season.

Thanks to the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), LSFM's market permit for the outdoor market space has been extended. 

"It is the power of the Chamber's network of members, vendors and other community people that it is possible to not miss a beat with our market this coming weekend," says Nilda Esparza, who is volunteering as this year's market manager and serving as the Chamber's interim Executive Director.

Aside from sending prayers for the good weather providers, the network is working hard to locate a different indoor space for the remaining weeks thru Mar. 28, 2021. Their collective priorities are all focusing on the fact that continuity is a key to successfully serving their customers, a task they have done since 2007.

Vendors
There is a wonderful line up of vendors for this market. They are diverse. Some have been at this market before, others have not. Some are local, some are not. What they all are is eager to provide top quality products to market shoppers.

At the moment, the vendor list for this up coming weekend is listed below. It may be updated later in the week.

Shoppers
It is important to remember, as though you could forget, that we are in the midst of a pandemic and that certain protocols must be followed, such as wear a mask, social distance and the vendor will pick the item you want. For complete rules and regulations, check this out COVID-19 guidelines.
 
Volunteers Needed
Volunteers are needed to help at the market. 

"We are expected to need about 10-12 volunteers each market day to be able to properly open with all of necessary guidelines. Please review our new policy, please do so here," says Esparza. 

"Volunteer shifts allow for social distancing, we will provide PPE (including face shield if you'd like), and shifts are 2.5 hours. Roles include: line keepers, assisting with the check in booth, tallying customers, and ensuring the market perimeters are secure. Sign up for a shift here."
