The City of Chicago requires a Pop-Up User License for pop-up user business activities (i.e. anyone selling merchandise/food in the City of Chicago in a temporary location). We currently hold a Tier 11 host licenses in the City of Chicago at both our Ravenswood and Fulton Market Location. Participation in the Chicago Artisan Market requires a pop up license.
Please refer any more detailed questions to the City of Chicago’s Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection (BACP) regarding City of Chicago Pop-Up User Licenses (City Code 4.212 – Pop-up Retail Users). Their office is located at the following address:
