About Randolph Street Market
It’s been named the Best Flea Market in Chicago by Time Out Chicago, and considered one of USA Today’s 10 Best Flea Markets for Finding Vintage Treasures. It also made Better Home & Garden’s list of 9 Flea Markets You Must Visit Before You Die. We think it’s safe to say shopping is taken to a whole new level at Chicago’s Randolph Street Market. Each year, Randolph Street Market is home to lots of themed fleas, one of which being the Holiday Market. During the summer months, the market is held outside and in cold months, it’s hosted inside Plumbers Hall. Although each market is slightly different, they all feature hundreds of vendors with antiques, home goods, fashion items and collectibles.
