With the Gerber Building nearing completion, I’m working with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) to iron out details that would make it possible for the entire space to be used by Chicago Market, a cooperative grocery store focused on providing local, organic foods and building community. The newly rehabbed CTA Wilson Station was a game-changer for the area, and it’s crucial that its accompanying retail space captures the essence of the community. Chicago Market does that and more. The community support is very strong for a cooperatively owned grocery store that hires from the neighborhood, provides access to healthy, local, sustainable products and transparently shares information about where your food originates.
Chicago Market will reach a milestone of 1,000 owners this week. If you’re already an owner, be proud and consider inviting your friends or neighbors. If you’re not an owner, NOW is the time to join us and be a person who affects change!

You can also come celebrate with Chicago Market to meet board members, owners and those interested in becoming members on January 27 from 2 – 5pm. For more information and event location, click here.
