Rosemary Metzger, Owner #1495, has a vision for ways her grocery Co-op can help her. Read how.
Chicago Market is more than a co-op grocery store; we are a community and we are celebrating the talented musicians in our midst at our first-ever Chicago Market Musician Showcase at Uncommon Ground, Lakeview!
Join us for dinner, drinks and music from acts that feature at least one Chicago Market Owner. Americana and Old Time music with Kolleen Blume; the big band sounds of Funkalicious Big Band, with Greg Berlowitz, Lori Eich and friends, and more.
Come be a part of Chicago Market's community with music, food and organic Greenstar beer. Everyone's welcome! Meet fellow Owner friends and musicians or talk with us about becoming an Owner.

Martha Feldman, Owner #1515 joined us recently and we're excited to get to know her.

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 at Bistro Campagne in Lincoln Square!
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!
Update: Bistro Campagne is donating a cheese and charcuterie board as snacks for the event and offering specials on red and white wines by the glass. They encourage everyone to make reservations for after the Mixer and stay for dinner! Reserve a table with them here.
