Enriching Logan Square

The Logan Square Farmers Market™ and Winter Indoor Market iaren’t just about food. It’s a great place to meet your neighbors and enjoy the outdoors. It’s also a place where you can learn more about your neighbors, your neighborhood and its resources.

The Chamber has set aside two tents or stalls. One is for businesses we think you’d like to know about, and the other is for organizations and groups that work to make our neighborhood a better place.

The Commercial Tent or Stall provides businesses an opportunity to inform market goers about their products and services. There is a fee for use of this tent. Proceeds support Market operations. First priority for the Commercial Tent goes to businesses that are Chamber members; businesses located in Logan Square; and then other businesses that serve Logan Square.

The Community Tent or Stall provides an opportunity for those who live and work in our neighborhood to talk with market goers about Logan Square organizations and programs, and spread the word about local civic affairs and public issues directly affecting neighborhood residents. Priority is given to:

  1. Not-for-profit or community organizations providing a service or program, located in and serving Logan Square.
  2. Government units or agencies serving Logan Square.
  3. Advocacy or public interest groups with active membership in or from Logan Square.

 

The Community Tent or stall is such a huge success that we are asking community organizations to limit using the tent to one Sunday per market season.

The grass on the Boulevard adjoining the Market or the Lobby of the Congress Theater offers neighborhood performers a place to showcase their talent, and the Chamber is happy to invite them to reserve a time there to entertain the market goers. Performances will begin at 12 noon every Sunday. There is no charge for use of the venue, and a hat can be passed for donations. Priority will be given to performers with a Logan Square connection. Electrical power is not available, but battery powered amplifiers are permissible, at the Market Manager’s discretion.

For information on reserving the Commercial or Community Tent or stall, contact the Chamber at 773-489-3222, or e-mail to linnea@loganchamber.org. For performing on the grass or in the lobby e-mail to music@loganchamber.org

We’ll see you on Sunday!

Performers and users of the promotional and community tents or stalls acknowledge that the Logan Square Chamber of Commerce is solely responsible for determining appropriate use of the Market. By requesting participation, organizations, groups and individuals agree to abide by the decisions of the Chamber.
