Chicago’s Maxwell Street Market will return to its original site for the first time in 30 years – NBC Chicago

The iconic Maxwell Street Market will return to its original home in Chicago later this month, the city announced in a press release.

Officials say the market will return to Maxwell Street for the first time since 1994, and will take place on the last Sunday of each month during the summer.

“The Maxwell Street Market has been a Chicago tradition for over a century. This not only promotes entrepreneurship, but also provides critically important opportunities for small businesses, including artisans, artists, farmers, restaurateurs and retailers,” Mayor Brandon Johnson said in a statement.

Officials say the market will be located on Maxwell Street between Halsted and South Union Avenue. It will also feature retailers and food vendors on Union Avenue between Rochford Street and Liberty Street.

Live entertainment, cultural programming and a wide variety of food vendors and retail options will exist along the market footprint.

The city moved the Maxwell Street Market from its original home to accommodate the expansion of the University of Illinois at Chicago campus in the mid-1990s.

The market once spanned a total of nine city blocks and was known as the birthplace of Chicago blues music and a wide variety of iconic food items.

He was depicted in several iconic films, including “The Blues Brothers.” Live music was much of the lifeblood of the market, with musicians like Muddy Waters honing their craft at the event.

The market was moved to Canal Street starting in 1994, then to Des Plaines Avenue in 2008, according to officials. It will now return to its original home, with the city announcing its opening dates on Thursday.

According to officials, the first market will take place on May 26 and will take place on the last Sunday of each month, except for the September 1 event.

More information can be found on the city’s website.
