There’s no Chicago market more iconic than Maxwell Street Market. This year, the market runs every Sunday through October 29, 2023, 9 am -3 pm. Open since 1912, this bustling marketplace is much more than just a place to shop, it’s a Chicago cultural mecca.
Maxwell Street was where Chicago blues was born and where savvy vendors developed a thriving economic hub. Today, visitors can browse through crafts, vintage clothes, housewares, and everything else at this historic spot. Enjoy live music, performances and some of the city’s best street food at this vibrant market.
Admission to the market is always free but the best deals and selections are often earlier in the day so arrive in the morning, browse the eclectic vendors, munch on tasty eats and watch and listen to live performers.
