The Winter 2019 season of the renowned Pilsen Community Market officially kicks-off Sunday, November 24th from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm and repeats every other Sunday thereafter through April 2020. Taking place indoors at Honky Tonk BBQ on 18th and Racine in the heart of the neighborhood, the Pilsen Community Winter Market presents Chicago’s widest variety of local Latino-owned businesses and entertainment under one cozy roof. From artists to bakers to produce makers, nearly 100% of the 25+ vendors who will encompass the sprawling venue every other week are Latina women – giving the term “Si Se Puede” a whole new meaning.
“During the winter, our Pilsen Community Market is unlike anything you’ll find in Chicago,” said Director Esmirna García. “It’s a showcase of diverse products from the surrounding community, and yet so much more. People like to stay and hang out, listen to live music and take in the scene!”
Along with an array of local craft vendors and artisans, the Pilsen Community Winter Market also features vendors that offer things like pastured eggs and meats, chemical-free produce, cottage foods, honey, butter, natural lifestyle products and more. This winter, baking and food vendors (vegan and carnivore friendly) will again be conducting live demonstrations. “Our vendors are hand-selected because they exhibit a love and passion in the products they make,” added Esmirna. As a bonus during the Winter Season, the bar at Honky Tonk will be open for business during and after the Market. Visitors can enjoy a Bloody Mary while they stroll along vendor row or sit back and listen to live music, which will include DJs, soloist, bands, trios and all types of music and genres each week.
