Chicago City Markets

COVID-19 Update

Based on Chicago's key health metrics, the city is currently in Phase 4 (Gradually Resume) – allowing additional businesses and public amenities to open with limited capacities and appropriate safeguards. Although progress has been made in order to move to phase four, all residents should continue to abide by important guidance including: physically distancing and wearing a face covering; limiting non-business, social gatherings to 50 persons for indoor events and 100 for outdoors; staying at home if you are considered vulnerable, feel ill or have come into contact with someone with COVID-19; and getting tested if you have symptoms. Please refer to the Chicago Department of Public Heath’s website, chicago.gov/coronavirus, for the latest local updates on the response to COVID-19.

Considered essential businesses, the Chicago City Markets managed by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) are open to increase neighborhood access to fresh and healthy food. DCASE will take necessary precautions to encourage social distancing and to protect customers and vendors. Independently-run farmers markets may also open pending approval by the DCASE City Markets Team. Regrettably, since the City of Chicago has cancelled all permitted special events through the end of 2020, Maxwell Street Market will remain closed.
