CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Chicagoans brought their jackets -- and appetites --  to Daley Plaza Thursday afternoon for the annual finale of the city's longest-running farmers market.

It felt a little different outside than it did when the Daley Plaza Farmers Market began back in May.

"Today is a great soup day," one visitor said.

The whipping winds didn't stop some from getting one last taste of 2018, and others from stocking up.

Pedro Munoz staffs the Stamper Cheese stand.

"It's easy for cheese since it can be stored for awhile, it's easy to take advantage," Munoz said. "In the summer, we get a lot of sales, but they're small."

For vendors like Joshua Gray with Eileen's English Toffee, the final day of sales is always the hardest.

"It's sad that it's ending," he said. "We hate to say goodbye to our customers and people that we've become friends with over time."
