15 Area Breweries Featured Among Other Local Crafts At Andersonville’s City Made Fest

cmf2015_logoSummer is not yet over. Temperatures may get warmer and, on Sept. 12 and Sept. 13, the Andersonville City Made Fest will take place once again. The fest showcases vendors — large and small — from all parts of the city of Chicago.

According to Jessica Hammer, marketing director for the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce, this is the third year for the City Made Fest. It is sponsored by, among others, the Andersonville Development Corp., which focuses on eco-Andersonville, a project to maintain the sustainability of local businesses and products.

From noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday, come out to Clark Street between Argyle and Carmen, 5000 to 5100 North, to hear local bands performing their own music. Enjoy beers brewed locally. In addition to 15 different breweries, these vendors will sell sangria featuring locally grown fruit that will be prepared by Cantina 1910, a new restaurant scheduled to open on Sept. 16. Green Sheep water served in recyclable aluminum bottles will also be sold. Venders will also be selling jewelry, soaps, confections and many other products.

Stop by to hear such bands as Dos Santos or DJ’s from Numero Group. Sample food from such places as the Goddess and the Grocer, Robinson’s Ribs and Heritage Bicycles for Coffee. If the weather is cool, Hammer suggests Katherine Ann Confections hot chocolate. “I drank a lot of that last year because it was cold,” she said.

There is a suggested donation of $5. For more information, including a complete list of bands and vendors, visit www.andersonville.org.
