Taste of Fulton Market Event Expands in Second Year

Organizers of the 2nd annual Taste of Fulton Market on Monday announced the initial wave of participating restaurants and placed a limited number of early bird tickets on sale. The event is slated for Sept. 29.  

Sponsored by SYSCO, the event is expanding in size and scope, now taking over the historic Morgan’s on Fulton special events building. This year’s showcase of the Fulton Market Dining District will benefit the Illinois Restaurant Association Educational Foundation Restaurant Employee Relief Fund and Recipe for Change, an organization that provides culinary instruction and job skills training to detainees at Cook County Jail. 

“As it was in year one, our purpose for this event is to raise money for the workers on whose backs this industry is built and to bring together restaurants from the hottest dining neighborhood in the country for a day of culinary celebration and gratitude,” said Morgan’s owner James Geier.
