Chicago Mayor's Office

 The Hatchery is a new food business incubator that opened in late 2018 in East Garfield Park. The 67,000 square foot facility is at the corner of Lake and Kedzie in Chicago’s Garfield Park neighborhood. Accion, the area’s largest microlender, and ICNC, which runs one of the largest business incubators in the country, are the joint venture partners and building owners. The Hatchery Chicago is a non-profit food and beverage business incubator that enables local entrepreneurs to build and grow successful businesses. Those successful businesses, in turn, create economic growth and new job opportunities in their communities.

The Hatchery is also the new home of the Garfield Park Neighborhood Market. To become a vendor at one of the 2019 indoor markets, fill out a vendor application and contact Angela Taylor for more information.
