    Pls. don't let an unfortunate incident stop you from attending the Jefferson Park Sunday Market. It's wonderful just to have it in our neighborhood. If you feel you have to be extra careful, mention it to that vendor and, I am sure, he/she will be glad to make things right. Please come again.

  • Merril Jefferson Park Sunday Market manager

    And actually the vendor did discover a problem with the scale, fixed it & had a test weight handy today in an effort to cooporate and put people at ease.

Pot Holes

Be careful on Sayre between Higgins and Gregory. Potholes are very deep,infact the whole street is in need of repaving.

  • Yes, and it is not right. I am not even talking far south, am talking 15th street south. I wonder how bad far south is. Even cell phone coverage gets crappy in Austin neighborhood. Why is that?

  • who knows!

Pop Up Table Space Available - Now you can rent a table for just one month

Attention local craft and food artisans! We have cleared out our center aisle to make room for our latest addition - pop up market space!! Now you can rent a table for a month, setup your goods, and we will sell them for you!

Table space is approximately 4' x 2' and there are three tables total. The table fee is $100 for the month. There is a sales commission fee of 10% + 3% to cover credit card transactions. The first open slot is August but you can move in as early as July 18th. At this time, we aren't accepting any jewelry.

This option is open to anyone currently selling on consignment or for any new artisans. The idea is to change the center aisle every month and give different artisans a chance to showcase their work.

In addition to the new table space, we also have one booth available for rent - this is for long term rental (versus the tables which are short term).

Please contact us for more info: market@localgoodschicago.com.

Bad accident at Devon and Milwaukee....

Think it was fatal car crash. Not sure how many cars were involved it was around 3:30pm. Sad, I hate diving around there, I try to avoid it,

  • Edison Park CJM EP Neighbor

    The Trib said the man passed away, he was from edison park.

  • Yes I seen that on the way home from work around 5:00 all I seen was a big dark blue or black p/u truck or utility vehicle smacked against the pole on that little island infront of the gas station. Looked bad! I was just over in that area about an hour ago and still a lot of debris on that little island

  • Correction... Not a utility vehicle, It was a heavy duty type of p/u truck...

Expectant parents in Jefferson Park?

I'm interested in meeting new or expecting parents in the Jefferson Park area. My husband and I are expecting our first at the end of February and would love to connect with nearby neighbors. We'd also be interested in future playdates, sharing day care responsibilities, or starting a babysitting co-op.

  • Ugh! Little Bloom Daycare and Irma was the worst experience ever. I am glad to have taken my 8 month old out of there (after a tortorous 8 weeks there) and isnt it interesting that I cant find her anywhere when I search on google! Id like to leave a review on that home "daycare".

  • My daughter is older now, but when she was small, Mamapedia (a free blog) was a lifesaver. There is advice from millions of moms, like birthday party ideas, parenting ideas, recommendations on a local doctor, etc. The local parents group is a great idea, and I wish I had time for it back then. Anyway, you might find this to be a helpful addition to your group. http://www.mamapedia.com/

  • Kenji in the 186 posts didn't see one crude remark about female body parts, or a remark which included stalkish details.

Have a Question for Your Alderman, John Arena? Ask it here!

What local issues matter to you? This Wednesday, December 5, Ald. John Arena (45th Ward) will be answering your questions live starting at 7 p.m. on cable channel 21 and online at http://www.cantv.org/live. Do you have a question for Ald. Arena? Leave a comment on this post or watch and call in live. Any questions are really appreciated! Learn more about CAN TV's Political Forum at http://www.cantv.org/politicalforum.htm.

  • I followed up with an email to Alderman Arena regarding my two unanswered question and he promptly replied to indicate that the blue recycling carts would be coming our way in 2013 and he is pushing for us to get our sooner rather than later. He also has an ordinance in the works to make Elston Ave. a no parking zone along the Marion's stretch and 20 feet beyond both driveways. He also indicated that another traffic congestion study will be done. This is all good news.

  • Federal mandates the local police municipality to govern airports which CPD covers. at O'Hare and Midway. So why are taxpayers on the hook for unarmed Aviation Police to qualify in police gun qualifications? It is an enormous waste of the taxpayers money and a waste of resources and time since they are not armed and will not be in the foreseeable future.
