The Randolph Street Market is invading the West Loop once again! Hailed the “Market of Markets”, this divine indoor/outdoor shopping experience returns to kick off its ninth summer season this Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27.
The Market will host over 250 select purveyors of, well, almost everything you could imagine. Antiques, furniture, new and vintage clothing, jewelry, paintings, sculpture, and all sorts of knick-knacks will extend over eight (eight!) acres of our city, so wear your comfy shoes and plan to stay for at least a couple hours.
Even if hunting for great bargains isn’t your thing, the Randolph Street Market has something for you. Demonstrations of all kinds will be taking place throughout the market, from interactive art and beauty treatments, to food tasting and live music. And if the flurry of inspiration and creativity leaves you mystified, you can grab a cocktail and take a load off at one of the relaxation vignettes. See? I told you they had everything.
Whatever your calling, this is a can’t-miss event. The market (Can we even call it that anymore?) will set up shop at 1340 W. Washington, Plumbers Hall, this Saturday, May 26, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, May 27, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission tickets purchased online are $8, and admission at the door is $10. Student tickets with ID are $3 online, $5 at the door. Kids under 12 are always free. Plus, every paid admission gets a $5 or $10 shopping voucher good toward purchases.
Much better than the old and tired Memorial Day barbeque, right? If you can’t catch the market this weekend, don’t worry. It will return every month through the summer, usually landing on the last weekend of the month. For specifics, visit the Randolph Street Market website.
Happy Memorial Day!
