What to Expect at the Randolph Street Market

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.

Maxwell Street Market Chicago

If you can smell the nopales (cactus) tacos and hear the cry of vendors hawking everything from car tires to pungent spices, you're probably close to the Maxwell Street Market, which is one of Chicago's greatest treasures. Located less than a mile southwest of The Loop, the weekly Maxwell Street Market has been an institution for over 130 years and a place for new arrivals from all over the world to set up their wares to sell every Sunday from 7am to 3pm, come rain or shine.
