At the Celebrity Chefs Ball, I met a food writer for one of the local Chicago magazines. She suggested that I check out Dose Market during my stay – it’s a once a month farmer’s market of some sort (no produce though!), with different types of food and fashion under one roof. Since it’s on my way to Navy Pier, I swung by to take a look.
Dose Market happens once a month, bringing food and fashion/accessories vendors from around Chicago and the neighboring states. Admission is $10, and only covers your entrance. I recommend not eating before hand, so that you can sample the food there. I ate breakfast before I went and then regretted it, as there were lots of pastry and coffee vendors. The space inside the Arts Center for the market is pretty small, with 15-20 vendors, so it’s crowded. Worth checking out if you’re already in the area.
Lots of people inside!

Gourmet marshmallows from Indiana. So yum!
The pastries looked so good but I didn’t get to try…
