Green City Market Celebrates 20 Years of Local Eats and Drinks at 2019 Chef BBQ

Jul. 24, 2019

Green City Market Chef BBQ 2019


The Green City Market Chef BBQ is one of Chicago’s most anticipated culinary and drink experiences of summer, and Breakthru Beverage Illinois was thrilled to participate again this July.  

A mid-July heat wave didn’t deter guests from showing up in droves to eat, drink and celebrate local at Chicago’s Lincoln Park, the home to Green City’s outdoor farmers market as well as this annual fundraiser. All proceeds from the event support Green City Market’s community programs and year-round markets.

Along with enjoying creations from more than 100 of Chicago’s best chefs, guests stopped by the Breakthru Beverage tent to sample custom cocktails, beer and wine from our brand partners.



All five cocktails were created using fresh herbs, fruit or veggies from the market from a refreshing strawberry-rhubarb drink with Avua Cachaça to a summer-inspired Stumpy’s Vodka cocktail with fresh garden tomatoes, citrus and celery.

Beers from BuckleDown Brewing, Spiteful Brewing and Dogfish Head were also available to sample, along with canned wines from Scarpetta.

Breakthru IL loves celebrating local and helping promote Green City’s mission of supporting local family farmers and increasing access to healthy, sustainable food. Special thanks to our associates and brand partners for making this year’s event another success.

Cheers to Green City Market for celebrating 20 years!
