You've eaten their food, bought their chotchkies, and saw them on TV with Rick Bayless, Andrew Zimmern, and Bruce Kraig.
The vendors at the New Maxwell Street Market now need your help to ward off the excessive regulatory burdens and bad managment by the City of Chicago. Each month the Market gets smaller; and vendors and customers are in decline. The existence of the Market is at risk.
We have to fight to save every inch we can of the slivers of authentic Chicago we still have left.
To the rescue are the vendors themselves, the Maxwell Street Market Vendors Association, El Maxwell Street Market Asociación de Vendedores.
Please show your support for them by "Likes" them on facebook. http://www.facebook.com/MaxwellStVendorsAssoc
