*All vendors must be setup 15 minutes prior to opening of the market.

We are excited to curate a market featuring local artisans, growers, farmers, bakers, and more for the Austin neighborhood, the second largest community area in Chicago.

Our mission is to bring the community a vibrant shopping experience where residents can access healthy food, build bonds with neighbors, and enjoy time outdoors. We strive to include in our market items that are original, handmade, unique, and designed or produced locally. Complete this form to apply for a booth for the 2023 market season (June 6 - October 31, 2024).

In an effort to be honest with my customers and fully transparent to the market management, I promise to sell only those products which I produce myself or which my cooperative produces. I also agree to be honest about my production practices with both market management and my customers. I understand that breaking this oath will result in removal from the market.
