All the candidates for the Board of Directors were asked a series of questions to help the Owners of Chicago Market make an informed decision. Here are their responses:
While the Uptown Farmers Market has been connecting amazing local farmers and producers with customers every Wednesday since May, we here at the Chicago Market Events Team were proud to add an artistic and literary vibe to our space this month!
As we continue working toward opening the full-service grocery store that will ultimately fill the building, we are happy to join with community partners and host events like Aug. 8th's Uptown Art Fair and Aug. 15th's Pop-Up Book Sale.Read more
We at Chicago Market were proud to host Peterson Garden Project's Ninth Annual Edible Plant Sale this past weekend! In addition to the hundreds of people that came through our location at Wilson & Broadway to purchase organic seedlings, we were able to welcome an awesome 10 new Chicago Market Owners who signed up in support of building a locally-focused, sustainably-minded, and community-connected grocery store in our space!
