An indispensable resource

Referring to the City Markets as “an indispensable resource,” Mayor Lightfoot indicated that the schedule extension is part of a larger effort to “deliver the foods and other goods our communities rely on” during the pandemic.

“Over the coming weeks,” she continued, “we will also explore even further measures to support our families — especially those with limited resources — in their efforts to keep healthy and fed during this unprecedented moment in our city’s history.”

Other City Markets getting the green light include Austin Town Hall on Thursdays, West Humboldt Park on Saturdays, and Bronzeville on Sundays. “Additional locations are located at Division Street, Federal Plaza, Printers Row, Pullman and Roseland,” the release stated. Additionally, several independently run markets are also extending and adding dates. To review a list of market schedules and locations, visit
