The Fulton-Randolph Market District, often shortened to, Fulton Market, is a district on the Near West Side of Chicago. It was formerly a meat-packing, warehouse and industrial district, but has gentrified with corporate headquarters, tech industry, hotels, bars, restaurants, and retail. Randolph Street and Lake Street are the main East-West streets, and Halsted Street is the major North-South artery. The district's name commemorates American inventor Robert Fulton and it is located just across the expressway from the Fulton River District to the east.
