  • Visited here for breakfast and a look around. I didn't realise how many food venues were here and the variety! Wow! Prices were really good and the hardest part was deciding where to eat! We settled o...  more »

  • The market is tucked under the train station and is jammed at lunch time. This is not your typical mall fast food experience. I did not recognize any brands - no big macs or taco bells. Everything fro...  more »

  • I came to Chicago as a tourist, and none of my local friends had been here but I still wanted to check it out. I am so happy I did! There was such an extensive selection of food and drink, there is something for everyone. I loved their artisanal chocolate place and the wine selection. Also got sushi, which was good also. My favorite features that I was surprised about was the seating in the back (cafeteria style) and the bar in the middle. Definitely worth the trip. I wish I'd bought more cheese.
  • Really good vibe right in the heart of the train station. Tons of different options but seems as though the best places have really long lines! I settled for the lobster place which has very small servings, but still really good.
  • Chicago is a melting pot of neighborhoods and the French Market puts all those neighborhoods under one roof. This is a great place for a tourist lunch stop or a quick lunch bite for local workers. It's also a great spot to grab a special gift for your significant other on the way home or a host gift to bring to your next dinner party. It's not as big as Faneuil Hall in Boston or Chelsea Market in NYC but has lots of potential to be even better than it already is. It does get very busy at lunch time but a great buzzing atmosphere.
  • Great variety of eateries as well as an "Al fresco" shopping experience at some of the markets. Now you can get bubble tea, poke, as well as lobster rolls and hit the patisserie and the Boulangerie. A space for eating is sufficient. During lunch hours certain eateries can queue up quick. But after hours and weekends are pretty chill
  • Awesome market for most any food you'd want all in one spot! Tons of cool vendors and restaurants inside. From the outside it's not obvious the size and multitude of options you'll find upon entering the doors.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
