Into the fifth week of 30 rotating vendors, Wicker Park Farmers Market, with the entrance at Damen and Wicker Park Avenues, will include several longtime and newer vendors among this week's 21 booths.

Mouthwatering offerings include plump lush blue berries from Joe's Blues. While it may be logical to assume that Joe Corrado's "Blues" refers to blueberries, the fact is it refers to the music he played 10 to 15 years ago! 

His decision to go into farming in Bangor, Mi, presented challenges his musical career did not prepare him for. "I've failed every way possible," says Joe with a laugh. 

"But I figured it out and now every year another field is converted to organic farming!" 

Wicker Park Market
In its 20th year, the market is open each Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. thru Oct. 25. 

As with so many experiences, the pandemic requires protocol to be followed to attend as well as vend at the market.

Please stay home if you have a fever or any COVID symptoms!
