In Paris, public markets are synonymous with French culture and style. Paris based Bensidoun USA, the leading purveyor of over 100 public markets throughout the world, is proud to present their 2018 Spring/Summer French Market schedule to Chicago and the following suburbs: Geneva, Glencoe, Glen Ellyn, Lisle, Ravinia District of Highland Park, Western Springs, Wheaton, and Wilmette.
With an abundance of local farmers, food and artisan vendors in each location, visitors will enjoy a variety of goods in these open-air markets that encourage community to gather, socialize and support small business.
As the sister city of Paris, Bensidoun brought their farmers market concept to Chicago 20 years ago. Since then, they developed the very first Chicago Food Hall, Chicago French Market, and their suburban markets continue to grow.
Bensidoun USA markets are recognized as some of the best outdoor markets in the Chicago suburbs. These family friendly events feature fresh produce, meats and flowers, live music, foodie treats and gifts, crafts, and freshly prepared delicacies from local vendors.
“We have been operating markets for over 20 years in the Midwest and the public has always loved the mixed market concept,” says market manager, Leslie Cahill. “The diversity and inclusion of farmers, food vendors, local businesses and artisans handpicked by our staff provides the ultimate experience week after week for attendees, with a Parisian flair.”
