HISTORY • Overview / • History • Sponsorship • Advertising • PR • Social Media • Factoids • Follow US

A Chicago tradition was launched twelve years ago with the successful debut of the Chicago Antique Market, which has grown into what’s now called the Randolph Street Market Festival. Every month but February, thousands of affluent style-setters pour through the gates of the largest and liveliest indoor/ outdoor European-style antique market the city (and region) has to offer.

Joining other world class cities including Paris, London and New York, Chicago’s Randolph Street Market is a key market event destination that locals and fans from around the globe can’t get enough of. Each month antique dealers, vintage resellers, fashion & jewelry designers, artisans, global goods, vinyl and fancy food purveyors from around the Midwest and as far away as New Mexico, California and New York, pull into the trendy West Loop Neighborhood and onto historical Randolph Street to set up unique displays in all price ranges. This shopping extravaganza has a festival feel, complete with music, spirits and local restaurant food booths. It truly is an experience. The Chicago Mayor’s Office, local and national press, trade, citizens and visitors alike embraced the market with healthy attendance, non-stop press and rave reviews.

WHY US?

WHY DO MAJOR BRANDS, NEWLY EMERGING BRANDS, AND EXPERIENTIAL MARKETING COMPANIES CONTINUE TO SEEK OUT THE RANDOLPH STREET MARKET FESTIVAL? • Overview / • History • Sponsorship • Advertising • PR • Social Media • Factoids • Follow US

ANSWER: BECAUSE WE ARE A “BUYING” MARKET. The Randolph Street Market is one of the very few markets in the Chicagoland area that attract loyal upscale neighborhood residents and families, out-of-state and international tourists who love to SHOP. We are a “buying” market offering a variety of categories from antiques, retro, collectibles, fashion, jewelry, furniture, fancy foods and more . . . layered with music, food, drinks and lots of glam. It’s a shopping destination and since you pay to get in, you are there to shop and experience. Unlike other entertainment venues that may sport higher attendance numbers, but offer limited targeted demos with a “hit or miss” approach to customer engagement opportunities, the Randolph Street Market offers a loyal following of upscale Chicago and North Shore neighborhood residents, families and tourists who come to our markets to shop and explore. This puts our markets a “cut above” other venues, because companies are looking for targeted venues that can showcase their products or services. Our markets offer the perfect venue for A-list sponsors to showcase their brand, perform demos, do “tastings”, promote new concepts and programs, stimulate trials and activations while engaging in customer one-on-one in a perfect environment. Don’t take our word for it, check out our A-list of sponsors and partners . . . . . . .
