Food lovers, gift givers, fans of the original Dose market and those who are just hungry will all have a place to flock this Thursday night when new pop-up night market Fête makes its debut at Room 1520. The market is the brainchild of Heather Sperling (Tasting Table), Emily Fiffer (Daily Candy) and Jessica Herman (formerly of Time Out Chicago), who all worked together as curators at Dose Market, and was created when the three split with Dose founder April Francis.
The full list of vendors was released today on Fête's blog, and it includes eats fromPublican Quality Meats, Bang Bang Pie Shop and City Provisions, among others. For those who haven't started holiday shopping, gift items ranging from Carriage House pickles and Co-op Hot Sauce to Martyn George vintage kitchenware and Dinner Party antique dinnerware will be for sale. And since you'll need something to sip while you browse, grab one of Mindy Segal's hot chocolates or try a sparkling wine from Illinois Sparkling Co.
Fête will be held at 1520 W. Fulton from 6 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door
or can be purchased online through Fête's website. A portion of the event's proceeds will benefit Fresh Moves, a mobile produce market serving local food deserts.
Update: The women involved were Dose Market curators, not founders. April Francis tells Eater she was the sole founder.
