With close to 3 million residents and over 50 million tourists visiting annually, Chicago is a bustling city with an energy all its own. In the 1800's, a combination of industrial boom and proximity to farms breathed life into farmer's markets of Chicago. The Fulton-Randolph Market District today is both a relic of past society and a "neighborhood on the rise". One of the original markets, which farmers rode wagons and carts full of their product to every early morning to sell to Chicagoans, still exists to this day. Several fishmongers and butcher shops still call the neighborhood home as well. There's change in the air, however, as big companies like Google and Dyson begin to set roots within Fulton Market. 

Walking around the area, you're sure to find some of the hottest foodie spots in the city, as well as high-rise condos, art galleries, boutique shops, and corporate offices all nestled comfortably in the old brick and stone bones of former meat-packing warehouses.

Chicago is an urban mecca for fans of sports and the blues, a city full of marvel for those interested in both modern and antiquated architecture, and a destination for those looking for coveted deep-dish pizzas and hot dogs. Fulton Market isn't a typical destination for tourists, as it's more well-known for its trendy bars and restaurants. It's here that you'll find "Restaurant Row", a highly walkable area which invites those in search of an evening full of delicious dishes and craft cocktails. 

Following the sidewalks down W. Randolph and W. Fulton, you'll find yourself strolling through what can feel like an outdoor food court. Both car and pedestrian traffic in Fulton Market can be heavy. Because the neighborhood is in the midst of experiencing transformation, you may come across construction which sometimes results in the closing of sidewalks. 

If your dog is friendly with strangers, not bothered by a lot of action and noise, and you enjoy people-watching, this would be an acceptable locality for a walk.

While the culture and dining scene of Fulton Market are industrious, available greenways and parks are not as frequently found. 

South of Restaurant Row, your pupper may enjoy a free-roam run at Mary Bartelme Park, which features a dog-friendly area. The fenced-in area gives your dog a chance to work on their social skills and burn off some energy, all while you enjoy a sit-down and watch their personalities shine. 

Fulton River Park is an unofficial dog park for many local dog-owners, as it has a nice open grassy area for a dog to relieve themselves. The one-acre lot shares its space with a gated playground which could act as an off-leash area, although not city-ordained, if you visited the park at an off-time when children aren't present. 

If you own a high-energy dog, walk just twenty minutes northwest from the heart of Fulton Market and you'll find Larabee Dog Park which features doggie water fountains and double-gated entrances to the fenced-in area.
