Looking for an exciting lunch destination this summer? Time Out Market Chicago has you covered.
The culinary and cultural hub in the heart of Fulton Market has unveiled a bevy of new food and drink options for the season. Guests can swing by for a “Taste of Summer” and try light and refreshing offerings from various Market vendors—each priced at only $15 or less.
For salad lovers, Big Kids has created a Vegan Baby-Q Salad Bowl featuring arugula, scallion slaw, charred barbecue onions and Beyond vegan nuggets tossed in Boom Boom spice. Ethiopian favorite Demera is serving a Beet Salad starring ayib gomen cheese and pumpkin seeds, while Bar Goa puts a spin on classic with its Chicken Tandoori Salad.
If you’re in the mood for something a bit heartier, Evette’s is dishing out a Mediterranean Grain Bowl loaded with couscous, muhammara, feta, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and choice of chicken or halloumi. Lil Amaru also delivers a Cilantro Lime Rice Bowl full of cilantro lime rice, escabeche, mojo aioli, arugula and either asada or al pastor.
And don’t forget to finish your meal off with a sweet treat! JoJo’s ShakeBAR offers a lineup of decadent milk bars, including a new vegan Rocky Road flavor. It’s the perfect way to cool off on a hot day.
In addition to the food specials, the Market’s bar has whipped up a new menu of cocktails. Sip on summery libations like There’s No Crying in Baseball—vodka, strawberry, lemon juice and Prosecco—and Spicy Mamacita, a blend of tequila, triple sec, mango, lime juice and habanero bitters.
Looking to take advantage of the warm weather and dine al fresco? Tony’s Rooftop Bar—the all-season bar located on the third floor—has expanded its hours and is now open from 4:30pm-10pm on Monday and Tuesday, 11am-10pm Wednesday through Saturday and 11am-9pm on Sunday. The outdoor space has been decked out with new furniture and makes for an ideal spot to soak up some rays with lunch. Later this summer, additional outdoor seating will be coming to the Market along Sangamon Street.
