Made up of local vendors, family-owned businesses and home-grown entrepreneurs, the Chicago French Market is the premier destination for artisan food products in the Windy City. With everything from grab-and-go meals to unique gift ideas, the indoor market is a must-visit destination for those attending Trend Hunter’s Chicago innovation conference.
The Chicago French Market was originally founded as a way to bring local farmers together in an environment similar to a European-style food hall. Today, the market is made up of more than 30 vendors showcasing food and other products from around the world. Some of the unique vendors found inside include a Hawaiian poké joint called Aloha Poké, a French creperie called FliP Crepes and a Vietnamese eatery called Saigon Sister’s.
With a growing number of consumers looking for ways to support local food purveyors, the Chicago French Market demonstrates how cities can bring together local artisans.
