First there was Maxwell Street Market and Renegade then came Randolph Street, followed by Dose Market, and The Vintage Garage and then Fete. This Sunday, May 5 comes the inaugural edition is Chicago Flea MKT, which promises to be the newest addition to the city's vibrant independent artisan scene.

Taking place outdoors in a traditional flea format at the A.N. Pritzker School in Wicker Park, 64 locals hock their wares at this new open-air market. From the roster of artisans the line-up looks pretty diverse: there's simple earrings and necklaces from Juliet Jewelry, yumyums from 5411 Empanadas, and really cute stationery from BoxBerry.
