In Memory of Abby Mandel: Supporting Fresh, Healthy Food for Everyone

August 18, 2008

By Rochelle Davis, Founding Executive Director

We are all saddened to learn about the death of Abby Mandel, the founder of the Green City Market.  Abby was passionate about bringing the healthiest and freshest produce to all Chicagoans. 

Her work inspires all of us who love healthy, nutritious food and her spirit lives on in each of the farmers markets now scattered throughout the Chicago area. 

We can best honor her memory by continuing to support her vision of fresh healthy food for everyone.
