You already know about the deals at Dekalb Market, and the market’s special Sunday afternoon Fashion Week event. So while you’re there, why not become a chicken farmer too? This Sunday, 3rd Ward is bringing some of its “Epicuriosity” workshops to the market for free lessons in urban farming. From 5-8pm, check out two classes:  Chickens in the City with Megan Paska, where you can learn how to raise your (perfectly legal!) city coop, order and care for birds and more; followed by Seed Saving with Zach Pickens, where you can learn how to save seed from your garden to save money, preserve plant varieties and get a head-start on next year’s growing season. There’s also a happy hour and a request to BYO-shirt for screen painting. Check the details.
