Shop for locally made crafts and other artisan wares at the monthly Handmade Market Chicago, a marketplace that brings together the best artists and vendors in the Chicago area. This event is held on the second Saturday of each month from noon to 4 p.m., and it's completely free to attend.
Handmade Market Chicago takes place at the Empty Bottle, a casual bar in Ukrainian Village. Vendors at the market sell items like funky jewelry, glass pendants, knitted items, handbags, clothing, paper crafts and more, so no matter your taste, you're sure to find something that you'll love. You can also shop with a mimosa in hand, and if you get hungry while browsing, regulars encourage you to pop in for brunch at the Bite Cafe next door.
