The once wholesale district for meat, produce and flower vendors has recently evolved in a splash of artful living unlike any other community in the city.
Settled in a corridor just east of Halsted Street to Ogden Avenue to the west, and south of Lake Street to the Metra Rail near Kinzie Street. Fulton Market gained significant attention when Oprah Winfrey moved her former Harpo Studios to the area, giving a look to a community once thought of as just a wholesale district.
Today, it is home to tech giant Google, and making room for McDonald’s Corporation as it moves its world headquarters from Oak Brook to Fulton Market. And that’s just the giants. Other Fulton Market businesses include fashion designers, art galleries, interior decorators, event spaces, hot restaurants, and trending lounges that make for a spectacular city neighborhood.
Most every home available is a condo and has a warehouse loft feel if it’s older – or classy, clean sleek lines if it’s new construction. Either way, bold is the name of the game in Fulton Market, and the flair of the community is definitely one the neighbors are proud to call their own.
Metra, Chicago Transit Authority train and buses run near the area, with several stops and routes nearby.
