It’s all in the name really.

The market was originally linked to being sponsored by Vans, but it is now so much more than a sponsorship – it showcases local talent in Chicago, in the form of DJs, chefs and artists.

The vintage goodies also give this market character, be sure to catch the festivities twice a month in the quirky town of Portland Oregon
