Last Outdoor Randolph Street Market Festival of the Season!

September 27th, 2013 · No Comments · chicago events

Another Randolph Street Market Festival is being held this weekend. If you’ve been been this year or ever, you owe it to yourself to get out there as this is the last outdoor Randolph Street Market until May 2014.

September 28th and 29th, 10 AM to 5 PM.

1340 W. Washington Plumbers Hall. Admission is $8 in advance or $10 at the gate.

Check out the videos, FAQ, and see more information on their web site.

Wikipedia has a good article on the Randolph Street Market.
quote: “The market has been compared to New York’s Chelsea Flea Market, London’s Portobello market, and the Paris market at Porte de Clignancourt”.

Yelp reviews
quote: “Clothing, jewelry, furniture, brickabrack, plus live music, food, & liquid libations abound!”
note: A number of reviewers recommend negotiating on prices e.g. if $30 for something seems too much for you, offer $15. Maybe walk away with it for $20. Also, a number of people mention getting discount tickets from LivingSocial or Groupon, although I don’t see anything at the moment. However there are discount tickets e.g. 3 for 2 on the Randolph Street Market web site.

Speaking of discounts, you can also get into the last two hours on Sunday for free! That might also be the best time to haggle, when vendors would rather not pack up and take unsold merchandise home.

note: Includes floor plan, printed FAQ, and articles.

Facebook & Twitter, for the latest news and info:
note: Randolph Street Market is big into social media i.e 8 tweets in the last 24 hours, so these are good sources of information.
