The West Loop Community Organization (WLCO) is proud to announce the Fulton Market Expo (FMX), an annual celebration of local farmers and makers.
Inspired by the recently landmarked Fulton-Randolph Market District, FMX is based at Fulton Market between Peoria and Green Streets. The block, first constructed in 1887 as the historical Fulton Street Wholesale Market, was the headquarters of Chicago's meatpacking consortium — a conglomerate of twenty-two individual companies. Today, the corridor bustles with popular businesses.
The Fulton Market Expo showcases community creators of all kinds through dynamic programming, which is why we kicked the festival off with fashion designer Borris Powell’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection. The award-winning West Loop resident debuted his new line on April 7 in the Fulton Market District with an inaugural ribbon-cutting ceremony.
