  • June Owners Meetup

    chimark_owner-meetup-banner-01_(1).jpg

    Join us at our monthly meetup on the  first  Tuesday  in June at Southport & Irving

    One of the things we value most is community building – with folks in our neighborhoods, with business partners, but especially among Owners.

    That's why we've developed new monthly Owners' Meetups. The first  Tuesday  of every month, we'll have an informal meetup for Chicago Market Owners at a local establishment. Drop in for a drink or a snack, connect with other Owners, and find out what's going on with Chicago Market, our fellow community members and organizations.

    Want to help grow Chicago Market? Bring a friend! 

    Not yet an Owner?  Become a part of our local food community!  You will have the chance to create your dream grocery store while engaging with your local food community. Owners have a voice in store leadership, receive patronage refunds over time, and are eligible for special discounts & promotions. Owners know that they are making a difference in the lives of shoppers, farmers, food producers and store employees. 

    There is no entry-fee to the event; your RSVP is requested.

    chimark_info-session-banner-2-01_(1).jpg

    You've seen some Chicago Market posters. You've heard your friends talking about this local, sustainable food co-op. Maybe you visited us at one of our Pop-Ups.

    But what exactly is Chicago Market?

    Come to one of our upcoming information sessions to find out.

    Owners and Board members will be on hand to answer your questions and tell you more about the Market. And we'll be prepared to sign up new Owners who are ready to buy a stake in this cooperative grocery store.

    This meeting of the Book Club has been rescheduled for June 20th.

    American Wasteland

    Based on the poll on our owners' Facebook page, the next book we'll be reading & exploring is American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of Its Food (and What We Can Do About It).

     

    As always, all are welcome to attend! Feel free to bring along a friend who maybe isn't an owner yet, but is curious in learning more about our Chicago Market community. If you aren't able to finish reading the book before we meet, you're still invited to join in our discussion. For those interested, Café Chien will have their delicious pastries and coffee drinks made with Metropolis coffee beans available for purchase.
