business clinic and a marketplace of resources and vendors. Food workers, farmers, vendors and local leaders are invited to reflect on the past year of efforts
and accomplishments in food justice, including Cook County's adoption
of the Good Food Purchasing Policy, and collectively imagine how the

entrepreneurs navigate the process and encourage minority owners to
participate in the City Markets program, procurement contracts and other
vending opportunities in Chicago.

fronts to host pop-up markets, also making it easier for vendors to sell
at them! Come and learn more about this process, whether you are
looking to sell merchandise or to host a selling event.
Food Halls–A Conversation
panel discussion about the new food hall craze will include an
entrepreneur who presently has a business at a food hall, an owner of a
food hall and a building/property owner. The casual conversation will
focus on trends and lessons learned.
