Best Chicago Summer Markets!

Are you in the Chicagoland area? Take a look at some of the markets, events, and pop ups I have planned over the summer!

Markets for Makers

This is an amazing event in Ravenswood at the Artifact Events. There are always a mix of local and traveling vendors, with plenty of home decor, jewelry, and hand-crafted goods to browse. They are a dog-friendly event and have some really tasty (and strong) adult beverages. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon! Reserve your ticket here.

  • Location: 4325 N Ravenswood Ave
  • Date: July 23rd and 24th
  • Time: 11-5
  • Ticketed? Yes, but you get a nice tote 🙂


LuckyMart is one of many midwest markets put on by Six Ways Markets. At a dog-friendly brewery in West Loop, this is a perfect place to stop by while weekend window shopping. And with all the amazing restaurants in the area, you can grab a bite afterwards!

  • Location: On Tour Brewery
  • Date: June 18th and 19th
  • Time: 10am – 6pm
  • Ticketed? Nope!

Sauced Night Market

If I had to describe Sauced with one word, it would be cool. At house of vans in west loop, the vibes, music, and vendors are all cool. As a night market, it’s perfect to stop by after work on a Friday, or as a place to start your evening on Saturday.

  • Location: house of vans
  • Date: May 13th and 14th
  • Time: 5pm – 10pm
  • Ticketed? Nope!

Renegade Craft

This is easily one of the largest events for small businesses in Chicago. Over the summer, these outdoor events are in busy neighborhoods like Andersonville and Wicker Park. Streets are closed down and filled with vendor tents, food trucks, and more! I sold through almost all the products I brought to the event in spring, looking forward to the next opportunity (hopefully this September!)

  • Location: Andersonville (clark street)
  • Date: May 21st and 22nd
  • Time: 11am – 6pm
  • Ticketed? Nope!

Where should we go next? should we take cheerware on the road?
