Fulton Market Block Between Peoria & Green Street


Every first Saturday of the month through October, we’ll be on site at the Fulton Market Expo (FMX), the West Loop’s newest makers market. FMX is a new community program hosted by the West Loop Community Organization (WLCO) in partnership with the Office of the Mayor and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE). The celebration is open to the public and takes place on the Fulton Market block between Peoria and Green Streets from 9:00AM-1:00PM.

In 1887, Chicago’s meatpackers moved from Jackson Park to the West Loop. They formed a consortium 22 butchers strong and called themselves the Fulton Market Wholesale Market Company. The rest is history.

When everyone moved, they set up shop on the Fulton Market block between Peoria and Green Streets. Two expansive structures were built by architect William Strippelman, and the site quickly became home to one of the largest meat markets in the world. Following Chicago's 2015 landmark designation, and comprehensive streetscape renovations, the block is now the center of the Fulton Market Expo (FMX).

You can find handmade jewelry, baked goods, fresh flowers, and so much more at the expo each month. So come and join us as we put the Market back into Fulton!
