FULTON MARKET — After closing its doors a second time amid a coronavirus surge last fall, Time Out Market Chicago will officially reopen later this month.
The sprawling food hall at 916 W. Fulton Market will offer diners dishes from new and returning restaurants including Urbanbelly and Dos Urban Cantina when it reopens June 17.
“We can’t wait to invite our guests back to rediscover the flavor, heart and creativity of the city,” Sumindi Peiris, chief marketing officer of Time Out Group, said in a statement.
“We have closely collaborated with our renowned and locally loved chefs and restaurateurs to capture the essence of Chicago’s award-winning dining scene and bring it to life, in an inspiring manner, under one roof,” Peiris said.
In fall 2019, the 53,000-square-foot hall debuted with 18 vendors and three bars. In March 2020, Time Out Market closed the food hall ahead of the stay-at-home order.
Last fall when it reopened, several vendors did not return, including Jimmy Bannos Jr. of Purple Pig, embattled chef Abe Conlon of Fat Rice, Thai Dang of HaiSous, John Manion of El Che Steakhouse, Band of Bohemia and Zoe Schor of Split-Rail.
Here’s a full lineup of food vendors:
- Arami — restaurateur Ty Fujimura returns with traditional and contemporary Japanese dishes.

In addition to the 11 vendors, the market will have three bars including Tony’s Rooftop Bar, named after Time Out’s founder, the late Tony Elliott.
