Pumpkin Palooza taking place at the Chicago Flea MKT on October 6th

There are a lot of festivals in Wicker Park these days. We love to munch tacos from NOSH on Saturdays. Now we can wander down the block to see what's going on with DOSE. But we've also come to really love checking out the Chicago Flea MKT once a month in the Pritzker parking lot.

On October 6th from 10 a.m. to 50 p.m., Chicago Flea MKT will gather some of Chicago’s most Spooktacular artisans for a Pumpkin Palooza! The event will also feature clothing, jewelry, accessory, vintage vendors, and a pumpkin-decorating contest. 

You are invited  to explore the “tricks and treats” of Chicago Flea MKT’s veteran vendors, and peruse the collections of the newest members of the community.  And then there are the amazing food trucks! Start your morning with a breakfast sandwich on a sizzling pretzel roll from Eastman Egg! Slide on over to The Slide Ride for Chi-town’s greatest burger fix. Trick your taste-buds with a pastry from The Meatloaf Bakery, and top off your day with a scoop of Gelato D’dora.

Local Goods Chicago will be back in action, hosting on-site art projects for all ages. Pumpkin Palooza will feature a pumpkin-decorating contest, and the winner will take home a special treat. Ghouls of all ages are encouraged to participate!

When: October 6, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Where: A.N. Pritzker Elementary School – 2009 W. Schiller St. Two Blocks South of Damen-O’Hare Blue Line Stop.
