The newest addition to Chicago’s family of neighborhoods, the Fulton-Randolph Market district is a recently designated landmark district bounded by Grand Avenue and Randolph Street to the north and south, and Western Ave and I/90-94 to the east and west. From the middle of the 19th century to the middle of the 20th, the Fulton Market district served as a produce and meat packing district and a hub of wholesale food distribution in the Midwest. In the early 1900s, the nation’s “Big Three” meat packers, Philip Armour, Gustavus Swift, and Nelson Morris, all operated on the Fulton Market Street. Today, Fulton Market is still largely associated with food, attracting Chicago foodies who seek the avant-garde.
Fulton’s gritty industrial past are evident in its historic manufacturing and warehouse buildings, which now house offices for some of the world’s biggest companies. Google, Uber, and McDonald’s have established a presence in Fulton Market, bringing with them a slew of young employees. Where there were once meat companies and cold storage facilities, there are now creative firms, award winning restaurants and new places to call home.
