Randolph Street Market Returns to the West Loop
Starting March 29 on the last weekend of every month, you can enjoy the European-style indoor-outdoor market from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until December 14. The market features more than 200 vendors and designers from around the world—selling interesting and rare items from vintage jewelry to midcentury furniture. Mimosas are served at the Market Bar and there are plenty of activities to keep your family entertained. Randolph Street Market is located at 1350 W Randolph & the historic Art Deco Plumbers Union Hall at 1340 W Washington Street.
The Randolph Street Market is one of the most happening summer events in the city, especially for vintage gems. It’s home tothe Chicago Antique Market, the Indie Designer Market, and Modern Vintage Chicago! Critics have compared it to New York’s Chelsea Flea Market, London’s Portobello market, and the Paris market at Porte de Clignancourt. Each year it draws more than 10,000 visitors from Chicagoland and beyond. Some of the events featured at this year’s market will be the Vinyl Swap Meet with thousands of 45’s, rock, jazz, and showtune LP’s, the Fancy Food Market with chocolates, cakes, breads, spices, olive oils, salsa and other specialty foods, and last but not least, the Global Goods Bazaar with crafts and artisan goods representative of Chicago’s ethnic neighborhoods.
Onsite services will be available to protect and restore your market purchases and heirlooms. Services include appraisal, repair service for furniture, crystal, porcelain and lighting, and onsite furniture delivery service.
This is mainly a cash-only event, so if you’re planning to purchase anything, it’s better to have it on-hand because only some dealers take credit cards. But just in case, there will be two on-site cash stations at the market.
Tickets: $10 at the gate, $8 online. Students: $5 at the gate with a valid college ID, $3 online. Seniors get in for $5, and kids under 12 get in free.
Parking: Free onsite
