Maxwell Street Market

Time Out says

Open every Sunday 9am-3pm, this street market dates all the way back to 1900, when immigrant families would sell goods out of pushcarts. Today, the market has been moved and reestablished, but it remains an international experience of bargain hunting. Shop all kinds of merchandise—from furniture to clothes, household items, collectibles and more to the tune of a DJ and other live street performances. Even if scouring flea markets isn't your thing, the Mexican food alone is worth the trip. 



Address: 800 S Desplaines St
Transport: El: Red to Roosevelt, Blue to Clinton. Bus: 12, 18, 62.
Opening hours: Sun 9am–3pm

I moved to Chicago after living in San Antonio, TX for four years and I've been missing the street food like crazy. MSM had everything I was looking for: tamales with spicy salsa, fruit in a cup, hot churros, and freshly made tortillas. I can't wait to go back. 

The best place to spend a Sunday morning/afternoon in Chicago. 

If you like Mexican street food, the tacos at Manolo's are the best in Chicago. The tortillas are fried right in front of you and the meat is always fresh. 

You know never know what you'll experience at Maxwell Street Market because it is part flea market, garage sale, party and brunch spot. A must go for any urban dweller and tourist alike.
