The Green Tomato Café (GTC) is proud of our local partnerships to bring the very best that our North Lawndale neighborhood and Chicago has to offer. It’s through our partnerships that we look to build strong and sustainable communities.
CHICAGO BOTANIC GARDEN - WINDY CITY HARVEST
Our collaboration with the Chicago Botanic Garden's Windy City Harvest provides the Green Tomato Café with fresh, organic and locally sourced vegetables for our menu through our Lawndale Youth Farm and our Lawndale Farm Stand. The Farm stand is open each year from mid-summer into fall*. Stop by the patio to pick up your own locally-grown produce!
*2018 dates/times: July 11th - November 14th. Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Because GTC champions natural and local we carry natural BeeLove honey and skin care products. Sweet Beginnings LLC makes its all natural beelove products from raw, natural honey extracted from its urban apiary right here in North Lawndale!
