As a regular vendor at RSM you and your crew run the best market around! Its really an honor to be part of your market and to work with you. I drive up from St.Louis to set-up and always look forward to meeting new and my regular customers each month!I have done many markets around the country and nothing comes close to the excitement of the Randolph Street Market! Keep up the good work! –Rand Rosenthal, Garden Antiques
Lexy and I have found this to be true, RSM is a goldmine!!! We do shows that cost a lot of money..but nothing compared to RSM….as far as return on investment.. And I look at investment ..and the return I get. –Richard Kasvin, Chicago Poster + Print
I’ve done other markets, but they don’t compare to the overall experience and value RSM offers. Vending there has allowed me to meet amazing vendors, get feedback on product offerings and staging and sell to numerous customers who include stylists, fashion designers, interior designers and the buyer for the hit FOX television show Empire. –Kabria Cummings, Global Attic
Selling at RSM has helped me evolve and expand my vintage business. I was ready to grow my business and moving into the city and Randolph was the right move. I learned to change and adapt to what the customers want, but still display with my own aesthetic. Shoppers come to the market hungry for unique, quality, fresh items and if you can offer that, they are there to buy!! –Jocelyn Reimann, The Green Door
Attention all TOP sellers: THE RANDOLPH STREET MARKET FESTIVAL IS WHERE IT’S AT!
For anyone who wants to get in front of the most influential and well-traveled shoppers, RSM is unlike any other market in the country. In fact, many visitors from around the globe consider the Randolph Street Market to be THE MARKET of markets!
When we began this journey in 2003, the West Loop Fulton Market was totally sleepy and super affordable. Since then, the WLFM has become the hottest and priciest hood in the city. It’s now home to many sports and entertainment folks, tech geniuses, business movers and shakers, along with internationally recognized Michelin restaurants like Girl and the Goat, Smyth, and Elske, plus it’s now a real hospitality hub with Robert de Niro’s Nobu Hotel and London’s Soho House, all just down the street. And throw in some incredible new concept stores Billy Reid, Notre, and SVRN, style hunters abound up and down Randolph Street!
Consistently named as one of the Top Ten US Antique Markets by Architectural Digest, USA Today, Travel & Leisure, UK Guardian, HGTV, goop and many many other news outlets – the Randolph Street Market gets a clientele unlike any other “flea” or local market, hosting professional and retail shoppers with taste and wallets to appreciate and BUY authentic unique goods from super talented people like you.
We have booth options at a range of price points depending on your budget, we invite talent at all levels to apply, we LOVE discovering stars! Rest assured that wherever you fall in the food chain, there is gold to be found for you here at Randolph Street Market!

Dealer Layaway Plan
The Randolph Street Market is a democratic enterprise and we want talent of all shapes, sizes and economic circumstances.
We want to make it easy for you to lock in a space without having to pay the entire invoice upfront if you need to conserve cash. However we also do not want to hold any spaces without some type of non-refundable deposit so we can plan accurately on who will be attending.
Randolph Street Market requires a minimum 50% deposit to hold a space with the remaining balance payable no later than 21 days prior to the market date. Without full booth payment by this date, we will release your reservation and return your deposit minus a $50 processing fee. If you cancel anytime between 21 and 7 days before the market, there are no refunds, just credit towards another market in the same calendar year minus a $50 processing fee. If you cancel on or after 7 days before any market there are no refund or credits. The market takes place rain or shine, indoors and outdoors and is never cancelled.
Booth sharing is allowed ONLY by permission and both vendors must be listed and pay the City pop-up license separately.
You may pay by Credit Card, Check or Paypal. Please make checks payable to: City Markets, Inc. Dealers who have written bad checks will lose check payment privileges, and must pay in cash or credit card. Dealers whose checks are returned unpaid will be charged an additional $100 bank fee.
