  • Open House (with Special Guest Mossum)

    Would you love to just come walk around inside our future store? We don't blame you - it's pretty inspiring.

    During our monthly SHOP pickup hours, we welcome drop-ins, whether you're an Owner or not. Check out the historic staircase; dream about where all the fresh, local produce will go; and ask our team any questions you may have. Plus, our SHOP team always has some of their items for sale on the spot.

    Bonus feature: this month's Open House will also feature new SHOP vendor Mossum, live and in person with samples! Kim Jean will be on hand to tell us about Mossum's edible algae sea moss, a 100% natural, nutrient dense, sustainable food that is vegan, low calorie, and also delicious. Come get some!

                  

    And if you're already an Owner but haven't received your Owner tote bag yet, stop in for that and start carrying it proudly over your shoulder to tell the world YOU OWN a grocery store!

    If you RSVP below we'll send you a friendly reminder, but it's not necessary. Drop in anytime between the hours of 11:00am and 3:00pm on June 20.

  • So, You Want to Be a Board Member?

    Join Chicago Market Board Member, Dana McKinney, for an online session on what it means to be a Board Member for our start-up food co-op. She’ll review what the Board does, the skills that typically make a Board Member successful, the time commitments involved, and what it means to be a “working board” versus a “governing board.” This is a casual discussion session, so bring your questions and we’ll do our best to answer them.

    Chicago Market will be hosting our annual Board Elections late this summer, so now’s the time to start thinking about if you’d like to run! RSVP and we'll send you Zoom login info.

    If you're not an Owner but would like to join this session, you're more than welcome, but note that our Bylaws require Board members be Chicago Market Owners, so you'd need to become an Owner prior to running.
