Randolph Street Market Festival Is Back

It’s a sure sign of summer – the Randolph Street Market Festival opens this weekend. Fodor’s and USA Today has listed it in their Top 10 U.S. Antique Flea Markets and the reason’s are blaringly obvious. Looking for a refurbished couch? An antique cuff link? An accordian? Etch-a-sketch? Cowhide rug? Repurposed kitchen table? OK, you get the drift.  Anything you’re looking for and especially everything you never knew you wanted can be found at Plumbers Hall select weekends over the summer.  Hundreds of vendors show off vintage, antique, indie designer, and global goods between 10a-5p. This is a designer’s dream, so much to choose from at one location.

2016 Summer Dates:

  • May 28+29
  • June 25+26
  • July 30+31
  • August 27+28
  • September 24+25

This Chicago tradition was launched 13 years ago with the successful debut of the Chicago Antique Market and it’s grown into what’s now called the Randolph Street Market Festival.  Trend setters from wide and far will step through the gates to experience the largest and liveliest indoor/outdoor European-style antique market that the midwest has to offer. It’s a very fun festival atmosphere complete with music, spirits and local restaurant food booths. There’s something in every price range so don’t let your budget limit your imagination.

The Randolph Street Market is located inside and outside of Plumbers Hall at 1340 W. Washington Street, Chicago.  You can enter the event through two gates: the Randolph Street gate and the Washington Street gate. Both gates are bordered by Ada Street on the East and Ogden Avenue on the West. Plenty of free street parking is available or if you take CTA it is a quick walk from the greenline Ashland el stop.  Click HERE to see an array of affordable ticket options.
