More about the Chicago Artisan Market

Our vendors are small businesses run by people who carry on the City's rich history as a “city that works.”  The sheer ingenuity and passion that goes into making their products is a cause for celebration, so we created a market to do just that!

We are dedicated to our mission of supporting small, independently owned businesses.

There are strong economic reasons why communities should support local artisans and independent, small businesses.

• They hire local.
• They pay taxes locally that fund our schools, parks, public safety and infrastructure.
• They grow faster than big companies.
• They enrich our culture.
• They are the soul of our neighborhoods.

We love that many of the small businesses we work with are women-owned, minority-owned, or both.

We've all read too many stories about “large” companies that receives tax subsidies to relocate to or stay in Chicago/Illinois – only to lay off employees a few years later. As the comedian Chris Rock exclaims repeatedly in one of our son's favorite movie scenes: “That ain't right!”

We purposefully chose Morgan Manufacturing (401 N. Morgan St.) in Chicago's Fulton Market neighborhood as the location for the Chicago Artisan Market. Few neighborhoods or buildings embody the transformation of Chicago's artisan economy better. A former meat market (Fulton Market) has been transformed into the City's finest culinary scene. A mid-19th century industrial building (Morgan Manufacturing) is today home to on-demand manufacturing businesses (Threadless & Bucketfeet) that crowdsource designs from artists all over the world.

Join us and celebrate the fact that nearly every successful business starts small.
