Farmers Markets

Farmers markets across Chicago are either shuttering for the winter or making their moves indoors. October 28 will mark the final Logan Square Farmers Market of the season before they head to the Congress Theater until next spring. Take advantage of the chilly temperatures and load up: we’ve been seeing a lot of peppers, onions, garlic and gourds at farmers markets these days.

Animal Advocacy

We have a soft spot for pitbulls and pitbull mixes. October 27 is National Pitbull Awareness Day, dedicated to appreciation and education on the much-maligned breed and to change the perceptions and stereotypes of pitbulls and their responsible owners. In conjunction with National Pitbull Awareness Day the no-kill dog rescue organization One Tail at a Time is hosting a Community Pitbull Day at Mozart Park (2049 N. Avers Ave.) from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Pitbull and pitbull mix owners who bring their dogs will receive (while supplies last): microchips with registration; spay/neuter vouchers; vet check vouchers; Martingale collars or humane training harnesses; four-foot leashes; stainless steel water bowls; humane care information; goodie bags with U.S. made treats and toys for happy dogs; and positive reinforcement demos with licensed dog trainers. The event ends with a doggies on parade procession from 3-4 p.m.
