The article stated there would be a farmer's market at Sears Tower (which is wonderful), but it is not on the schedule.

I came here to report the same thing. The Sears Tower Farmers Market will run on Thursdays starting June 19th and run through October 30th, hours are 7 am - 2 pm. Dates and hours are subject to change.

I used to be a big fan of the Chicago markets until I went to the Union Square Green Market in New York last November.

It was packed, vegetables, fruit, bread, meat, cheese, flowers. 4 days a week 52 weeks a year.

I went again when I was in New York last week. The pickings were slim at this point, but still better than what I see at the typical Chicago market.

Here we are in the center of the farming universe and we can't muster as good a market as NYC. There just is no excuse.
