It has held several public meetings with the Uptown community to explain more about it, and the next -- and last -- one is Saturday at the Bezazian Branch Library. If you would like to learn about the market, what its plans are, and what to expect if it is awarded the lease, we urge you to show up.
"This Saturday, May 20, we'd love you to come to a community meeting to learn more about Chicago Market's bid for the Gerber Building in Uptown at the Wilson Red Line Stop.
Our last meeting was packed, and Chicago Market board members (along with Alderman James Cappleman!) had great conversations with Chicago Market supporters and Owners - watch our blog for a summary soon. It was great to see all the enthusiasm for bringing a community-owned sustainable grocery store to the neighborhood.
The best way to show your support for Chicago Market (and to learn more) is to come to a community meeting. Our second (and final) meeting is Saturday at 1:30pm at the Bezazian Branch of the Chicago Public Library, 1226 W Ainslie. RSVP here.
Board Members from Chicago Market will give exciting details about the project, answer questions from the community, show off some drawings and renderings and, hopefully, get everyone excited about a local, sustainable, community-owned grocery store coming to Uptown.
If you want to support Chicago Market in other ways:
