Located in the shadows of the downtown skyscrapers, Maxwell Street Market is one of Chicago's oldest open markets. It's known for its bargains and international flavor. Many immigrants have come here to sell their goods over the years. The Germans, Irish and Polish came first, and more recently the Mexican community has a stronger presence.
We come here for the amazing food, like the delicious tacos and the tamales oaxaqueños that you'll see featured. It's a must stop if you are new to Chicago.
