Meet the 2015 VendorsThe Devon Community Market is the only place in the City of Chicago where you can snack on aloo chaat, browse exquisite wooden puzzles, listen to live marimba music, and finish it all off with a kosher cupcake! Our cooks, bakers, craftspeople, and artists come from the neighborhood with hand-made goods that reflect the rich (and delicious!) diversity of the area. Our fresh produce comes from various farms in the region that are committed to sustainable practices.
Some of the vendors will be participating in the Market on a rotating schedule rather than every week. And, we will be adding new vendors throughout the season. So, visit frequently because each week will be a new experience!
