Looking to find great antiques, one-of-a-kind vintage and independent local artists in one venue? Searching for retro serving dishes, a vintage Chanel handbag or jewelry from the newest up-and-coming designer? If so, the Randolph Street Market is the perfect place!
Located at Plumbers Hall in the West Loop and held during the Spring and Summer, the Randolph Street Market is a monthly event combines the Chicago Antique Market and Indie Designer Fashion Market.
The indoor-outdoor market consists of 200+ vendors selling everything from clothing and jewelry to furniture and art! It is a shopping haven for fashionistas, flea market enthusiasts and interior designers.

Unique, high quality goods are available at a variety of price points – although, in typical market shopping fashion, you can use your bargaining skills to obtain even better deals. And there’s no need to worry about food. This European-style market offers food and beverage stations to help you re-fuel in between each round of shopping. Score!
The antique and vintage dealers fill the entire Plumbers Hall parking lot, foyer and gymnasium, while the independent designers occupy the lower level of the venue. Besides selling their wares, the vendors willingly offer up the history or background story behind each piece. The market’s founder and executive producer Sally Schwartz has clearly mastered the art of selecting the most passionate vendors.
If you’re planning to visit the Randolph Street Market, be prepared to stay for awhile. The great finds, people-watching and engaging personal conversations will have you wondering where the time went.
