Standard Market (333 East Ogden Avenue, Westmont, Illinois 60559) is celebrating America’s birthday with a festival of fun and food for the whole family.
Listen to local music, watch cooking demonstrations by Standard Market chefs, enjoy the pig roast and beer garden, and bring the kids for face painting, magic, & balloon animals. Then savor the treats and samples from our vendors and farmers, many of whom make their products right here in Chicago.
