About

The Wheeler Mansion Market has closed for the season. See you next year!

The Wheeler Mansion Market is a people’s marketplace serving residents and travelers alike. We are devoted to nurturing the artisan food community, small businesses in the Midwest region, and historical roots of the Prairie District in Chicago. We aim to operate as a community hub to celebrate local culture and cuisine. The Wheeler Mansion Market is a vibrant, European-style gathering of local farmers, artisan producers, and independently owned and operated businesses; including an artfully curated selection of jewelry, furniture, art, and handcrafted products by local designers. The market is held on the spacious grounds of The Wheeler Mansion and features live entertainment and prepared food vendors each week. We are creating a community of local and destination shoppers that will:

  • Create a vibrant, thriving community that supports local farms and small businesses.
  • Encourage the consumption and support of locally grown, quality, and healthy foods.
  • Promote the Prairie District’s historical significance, diversity, and culture.
  • Provide a location for the promotion of the world-class food, wine, and craft beer producing regions of the Midwest.

Market launches Wednesday,  June 6th, 2012!

About The Wheeler Mansion

Originally built in 1870, the property is one of the few stately mansions that survived the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The Wheeler Mansion is a secluded boutique hotel, located in the elite Prairie District. We are just a five-minute walk to Chicago’s McCormick Place convention center and guests have convenient access to Lake Michigan harbors and beaches, the Field Museum, the Adler Planetarium and the Shedd Aquarium. We are also just steps from Chicago’s unique Glessner House Museum and Soldier Field.

Each luxury room and spacious suite is exquisitely designed—every distinctive room its own jewel box—containing eclectic mixtures of antique furniture and world collected treasures. The mansion serves as an idyllic backdrop for innovative meetings, elegant weddings and social events. With its superb accommodations and proximity to McCormick Place, the Wheeler Mansion makes for a premier destination for business meetings and celebrations in Chicago.
