Whether you are looking for an authentic Chicago souvenir or a one-of-a-kind collectible for your home, shopping in Chicago is more when you’re shopping local. During special Neighborhood Artisan Markets happening all summer, artisans and businesses from throughout Chicago set up shop at Navy Pier to offer items for sale and show off the city’s dynamic neighborhoods.
The Humboldt Park Boathouse, 1301 N Humboldt Dr in Chicago has been the setting for several of our pop-ups this summer under the banner of Lolita's Bodega.
The scenic and gorgeous setting is the perfect back drop for local entrepreneurs to market and sell their products. Follow us on our social media pages to keep up with our appearances here.
