Chicago ARtisian Market
Sunday, July 16th // 10a - 4p
401 N. Morgan St. Chicago, IL
The Chicago Artisan Market features the best of Chicago & the Midwest in food, fashion, home and art. Our vendors are small businesses run by people who carry on the City’s rich history as a “city that works.” The sheer ingenuity and passion that goes into making their products is a cause for celebration, so we created a market to do just that! We are dedicated to our mission of supporting independently owned, local businesses. There are strong economic reasons why communities should support local artisans and independent, small businesses.
• They hire local. • They pay taxes locally that fund our schools, parks, trains, hospitals, public safety and infrastructure. • They grow faster than big companies. • They enrich our culture. • They are the soul of our neighborhoods. •
Nearly two-thirds of the small businesses we work with are either women-owned or minority-owned. Join us for the Chicago Artisan Market, and celebrate the fact that nearly every successful business starts small.
