THE MAXWELL STREET MARKET CONTINUES TO OPERATE EVERY SUNDAY OF THE YEAR ON DESPLAINES AVENUE BETWEEN TAYLOR AND POLK STREETS, 9:00 AM TO 3:00 PM, where you can find bargains, authentic street food, and unique gift and food items. There is limited FREE parking on Desplaines Ave. from Harrison to Polk, and on Desplaines Ave. from Taylor to Roosevelt.  For more information contact cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dca/supp_info/maxwell_street_market.html. The Foundation thanks the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) that runs markets citywide, for their support toward the visibility and viability of the Maxwell Street Market as the longest-standing and official open-air market created by city ordinance in 1912.
