Sebastien Bensidoun | Chicago French Market
Established in 2009, the Chicago French Market is the city’s original food hall and a must-visit for foodies, tourists and families alike. Conveniently located at the Ogilvie Transportation Center in the West Loop, the market offers a taste of the best of Chicago's diverse neighborhoods with more than 20 fast-casual concepts and artisan retailers.
What distinguishes the Chicago French Market is its sheer diversity and commitment to only working with local chefs and entrepreneurs. Whether you're looking for a quick lunch away from the office or exploring the city during a family outing, the Chicago French Market has something for everyone.
The success of the market lies in the creativity and talent of the chefs and artisans in residence. They bring their best to the table and keep visitors coming back for more. The market has seating for 300 and can even host private events, making it a great option for special occasions and group outings.
The market's owners are third-generation French Public Market managers and took inspiration from European marketplaces, in particular those in Chicago’s Sister City, Paris. Although you can find great crepes, croissants and macarons, the food at the market is a microcosm of the incredible and diverse food scene in Chicago.
