Whether you are looking for an authentic Chicago souvenir or a one-of-a-kind collectible for your home, shopping in Chicago is more when you’re shopping local. During special Neighborhood Artisan Markets happening all summer, artisans and businesses from throughout Chicago set up shop at Navy Pier to offer items for sale and show off the city’s dynamic neighborhoods.
On July 12–14, the market celebrates the neighborhood of South Shore.
The centerpiece of this southern lakefront community is the South Shore Cultural Center — a complex of galleries, dance studios and public beaches that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. Perhaps partly because of its place as a cultural heart of Chicago, South Shore has incubated some of the city’s biggest cultural figures, including former First Lady Michelle Obama, Nobel Prize winner James D. Watson and rap superstar Kanye West.
