City Farm is a sustainable vegetable farm bordering two very diverse Chicago neighborhoods: Cabrini-Green and the Gold Coast. The farm boasts thirty varieties of tomatoes as well as beets, carrots, arugula, gourmet lettuces, herbs and more. All produce is grown in composted soil generated from various sources, such as restaurant trimmings from some of the city's finest kitchens.

The farm sells its produce primarily to local chefs and to the public from an on-site market stand. The produce grown at City Farm has been widely praised for its flavor, form and beauty. Bruce Sherman, chef and owner of North Pond restaurant and a long-time supporter of City Farm, says, "It's delicious. I don't get product just because they're doing the right thing. That product first and foremost needs to be exceptional. The fact that City Farm grows exceptional produce the right way only makes it better."
