Holiday Mercatino

Join us on Sunday, December 10, from 12-6 p.m. as we welcome local artisans and crafters to Eataly Chicago for Mercatino, our monthly craft market.

Mercatino, Italian for "market," is a place for local artisans and crafters to showcase their wares and share their passions with others. Just as we search carefully for the best products and producers to display on our shelves at Eataly, we have hand-selected each artisan for Mercatino. A selection of the city's best artisans will be stationed throughout the store displaying their innovative wares, from functional furniture to handmade jewelry. All artisans' wares will be available for purchase.

Read about all the artisans below, and join us on the second Sunday of every month to meet more local crafters!
