Green City Market BBQ tickets on sale now

SHARE Green City Market BBQ tickets on sale now

The good news: Tickets for the 10th annual Green City Market BBQ (July 15, 6-8 p.m.), which features food and drink from some of Chicago’s top chefs, including representatives from Avec, David Burke’s Primehouse, Hot Chocolate, Naha, Perennial and more, go on sale today.

The bad news: They’re $100 each, which is about twice the price of last year’s event. Still, you will get all the gourmet refreshments you can handle for two solid hours, and help to support a worthy non-profit. It’s up to you to decide whether it’s worth it, but don’t take too long — the BBQ sold out fairly quickly in ’09.

The outdoor market (1790 N. Clark) will be open today from 7 a.m.-1 p.m., and tickets for the BBQ will be available on-site. A special kick-off event including guided tours, a gardening workshop, chef demonstrations, tastings and more will happen Saturday from 7:30 a.m.-noon.
