From the Wheeler Mansion website:
The Wheeler Mansion Market is a people’s marketplace serving residents and travelers alike. We are devoted to nurturing the artisan food community, small businesses in the Midwest region, and historical roots of the Prairie District in Chicago. We aim to operate as a community hub to celebrate local culture and cuisine. The Wheeler Mansion Market is a vibrant, European-style gathering of local farmers, artisan producers, and independently owned and operated businesses; including an artfully curated selection of jewelry, furniture, art, and handcrafted products by local designers. The market is held on the spacious grounds of The Wheeler Mansion and features live entertainment and prepared food vendors each week. We are creating a community of local and destination shoppers that will:
- Create a vibrant, thriving community that supports local farms and small businesses.
- Encourage the consumption and support of locally grown, quality, and healthy foods.
- Promote the Prairie District’s historical significance, diversity, and culture.
- Provide a location for the promotion of the world-class food, wine, and craft beer producing regions of the Midwest.
