Explore Fulton Market returns
10/11/2012 7:21 PM
Fulton Market merchants are eager for visitors to stop in anytime, but especially this Saturday (Oct. 13), at the recurring open house known as Explore Fulton Market.
It’s an opportunity to introduce the funky neighborhood to people from the city or ‘burbs who aren’t familiar with the area.
“Explore Fulton Market has been going on for a number of years,” said sculptor Jeffrey Breslow, who ran the spring event and is handling it again this weekend.
“The idea is to show Chicago at large what a unique neighborhood we have with restaurants, galleries and shops that rival any in town,” he said.
Explore Fulton Market will take place from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, with a number of shops, restaurants and galleries participating, shown on this map.
Some of those businesses are offering special incentives to attract visitors, and there will be cash prizes (up to $300) for a few urban explorers who win “Explore Fulton Market Poker.” Rules are available here.
