Chicago Antique Market to reveal makeover May 24-25

CHICAGO – Starting May 24-25, the Chicago Antique Market celebrates its fifth anniversary with a new name, a new look, new hours, new elements and new vendors. Antique buyers, however, will still find a wide array of vintage and modern decorative objects, home furnishings, art, fashion and jewelry that has ever been assembled in downtown Chicago.

Held at 1350 W. Randolph Street in Chicago’s uber-chic West Loop, the European-style indoor/outdoor Randolph Street Market Festival is home to the world-renowned Chicago Antique Market and Indie Designer Market.

The market features more than 200 vendors selling a wide array of merchandise, plus onsite dining, wine bar, interactive demonstrations and live music from some of Chicago’s hottest bands and musicians.

New this year are mini “markets within the market” including the Vinyl Swap Meet, the Global Goods Bazaar, and the Fancy Food Market.

Free trolley transportation to and from the Randolph Street Market Festival is provided as a courtesy to shoppers. Trolleys depart Water Tower Place, 835 N. Michigan Ave., at the top of each hour from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and depart the Market for Water Tower at regular 30-minute intervals from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and at 4:15 p.m. Free and ample parking is available and the event is just .2 mile from Ashland and Lake streets’ Green Pink Line El stops.
