  • Urban Innovation Symposium

    Chicago Market's Board member Greg Berlowitz will be speaking on the Future of Co-ops panel at this year's 9th annual Urban Innovation Symposium. The Symposium will be focusing on collaborative creativity to solve a plethora of problems challenging the urban environment.

    The Future of Co-ops: How Cooperatives Can Contribute to Community Economic Development in Chicago

    Cooperatives are value-driven business enterprises that are collectively owned and democratically controlled by their members. While there are thousands of (non-housing) cooperatives in cities across the country, there are relatively few in Chicago but their numbers are steadily increasing. Even more promising is the fact that Cook County recently passed a resolution supporting the development of worker cooperatives. We will explore how different types of cooperatives are playing a role in community economic development and the potential for expanding cooperative enterprises in Chicago, especially in marginalized neighborhoods.

  • Meeting House Tavern Mixer

    Chicago Market isn't just a grocery store. It's a community. And the best part about being part of a community is getting to meet new people and learn about awesome things happening in the city all around you.

    That's why Chicago Market is hosting another mixer!

    Not only can you come learn about the awesome community-owned co-op grocery store coming to Uptown, you can also find out more about some of Chicago Market's close community partners.

    Come on your own or, in the spirit of building community, bring a friend with you. It'll be a fun evening of drinks and food, community-building and learning. Plus, if you want to become an Owner of Chicago Market you'll be able to do so on the spot. 

    See you there!
