Division Street Farmers Market Opens May 12 – Bloody Mary Shortage Imminent

May 5th, 2018 Posted by Events 0 thoughts on “Division Street Farmers Market Opens May 12 – Bloody Mary Shortage Imminent”

Time to take part in that annual Chicago tradition of getting the BEST produce, flowers, honey, and whatnots at your local Farmers Market. The Division Street Farmers Market is 2 blocks long and happens to be the best in the city. Number one reason why? Because it happens on the doorstep of the best bloody mary makers in Chicago…. We’re not saying who that is… but… you know.

Starting, May 12th in conjunction with the outdoor market Butch McGuire’s will be opening doors at 8am on Saturdays.

Go grab yourself a fresh cucumber and pop it right into your bloody mary!
