The Hatchery

The Hatchery is Here!

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, fill out a Market Vendor Application, or contact Angela Taylor for more information.

More information about The Hatchery can be found on Accion's website and in The Hatchery Fact Sheet! To learn about programs and classes offered for food business entrepreneurs, visit The Hatchery Chicago website.

The Hatchery and the Garfield Park Neighborhood Market, as well as the Impact Culinary Program, developed with Chef Rick Bayless, were recently featured on WTTW Chicago Tonight:
