Tuesday, June 20, 2017 4:00 PM by Maddy Osman

Randolph Street Market (1340 W. Washington Boulevard) is Chicago’s destination for vintage and antique shopping. The outdoor and indoor festival is located in the Fulton Market area. Randolph Street Market is modeled after European-style shopping markets. In addition to great shopping, you’ll find local food vendors, live music and family-friendly activities. There’s good reason why Randolph Street Market was voted one of the top 10 vintage markets in the U.S. by USA Today.

But I try and resist. There is one day a year, however, where I won’t be stopping my fingers from slipping that AmEx out of my wallet. Small Business Saturday supports local businesses around the country.
