Meet Market We love Northalsted Market Days, happening Saturday 11 and Sunday 12; it’s like Pride but with the tourists largely weeded out. More than 400 vendors offer the opportunity to drink and party with 250,000 of your closest friends and enjoy this year’s non-sucky entertainment lineup including Olivia Newton-John, Sheena Easton, Karmin and the Pointer Sisters (as well as classic fest bands like Sixteen Candles).
