Shop Jarvis Square started out as the side project Artisan Market over ten years ago. Five years after its start, several businesses joined the festivities turning it into SHOP JARVIS SQUARE. This year, 2017, marks our 10th year!

We are hosted by the Side Project Theatre, Lakeside Treasures, LAMS Real Estate, V-Tone Fitness, Luzzat Restaurant, Rogers Bark, R Public House, Rogers Park West/Ridge Historical Society, Towbar, Poitin Stil, Smart Cleaners and Taste Food & Wine.

Our marketplace features original handmade works from Chicago’s best artists and artisans … You’ll find jewelry, fiber arts, sock monsters, paper goods, fashion accessories, pet collars and accessories, photography and fine art. Their booths are located in the local businesses, which means you will also enjoy wonderful food and libations while you shop!
