The West Loop Community Organization (WLCO), a delegate agency of the City of Chicago, is proud to announce Fulton Market Expo (FMX), an annual celebration of makers, farmers, artists and small businesses. On Saturday, April 7, 2018, a ribbon-cutting ceremony will officially mark the launch of FMX at 1:30 pm at the corner of Fulton Market and Green Street.
Every Saturday between the months of June through October, FMX will be held on Fulton Market between Peoria and Green Streets from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. The block, first constructed in 1887 as the historical Fulton Street Wholesale Market, will once again be the home of a bustling exhibition.
“With the growth and resurgence of the businesses along Fulton Market, it is very important we recognize and pay homage to the history of this district,” says Carla Agostinelli, Executive Director of the West Loop Community Organization. “It not only is our responsibility to celebrate the history of the district, but to also encourage the makers and small businesses to join us in the creation of the newest chapter of Fulton Market’s history.”
Starting at 2:00 pm
, immediately following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, a local Fulton Market fashion designer, Borris Powell, will debut his Fall/Winter 2018 collection entitled “sideS of mE,” held in the WeWork parking lot at 220 North Peoria Street
