Maxwell Street Market
DCASE Homepage > Maxwell Street Market
For the next several months (due to construction), Maxwell Street Market will take place on Desplaines from Polk to Taylor streets. REMINDER: There’s limited FREE parking on Desplaines from Harrison to Polk, and on Desplaines from Taylor to Roosevelt.
The Maxwell Street Market is a Chicago tradition of bargains and bargaining with an international flavor. The market offers an eclectic mix of merchandise—from tools to tires, plus fresh produce, furniture, clothing, rare finds and collectibles—and some of the best Mexican and Latin street food in Chicago.
