Nestled next to the West Loop and River North neighborhoods, Fulton Market is known both to Chicagoans and visitors as a center for culture, food, trends and, most recently, beautiful high-rise buildings. As this area continues to develop, more options for apartments that keep you close to the action are proliferating; there’s never been a better time to consider moving to this vibrant part of town.

While Fulton Market is currently associated with luxury, its roots are much less glamorous.

The History of Fulton Market

Today, Fulton Street is peppered with new restaurants and high-rise luxury hotels. Historically, though, this area was a meat-packing district: home to the Fulton Street Wholesale Market Company, Fulton previously teemed with wholesale and local meat sellers, who provided meat and other food products to many businesses in the city. The neighborhood modernized over time, but continued mostly as an area for industry – not a place where people were drawn to live.

That began to change when Oprah opened Harpo Studios on Randolph and May streets in 1989. According to WTTW, Chicagoans consider this as a catalyst for change in the neighborhood; many restaurants soon followed, and the area continued to morph into the cultural center it is today. Though some meat-packing wholesalers still remain!

It’s always worth knowing the history of your city and neighborhood, as it can help you contextualize and appreciate where it stands today.
