Fall Exposure: The Maxwell Street Foundation will be at the New Maxwell Street Market in Chicago to sell a variety of Maxwell Street-themed items ranging from books to posters and T-shirts, and for good conversation about Maxwell Street and the Market. You can also shop for selected items on our website at maxwellstreetfoundation.org/support-us, and tell us your Maxwell Street stories at SUBMIT YOUR STORY.
THE MAXWELL STREET MARKET OPERATES ON DESPLAINES AVENUE BETWEEN TAYLOR AND POLK STREETS, THE FIRST AND THIRD SUNDAYS OF THE MONTH, 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) who run 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.
