Fulton Market, a once booming meatpacking industry from 1850 to the late 1980’s, is now highly regarded for its quality restaurants and vibrant night life. For several decades, Fulton Market was an industrial hub. It comprised of meat wholesalers, food processing and distributing plants, grocery stores, butchers, and even pelt sales. However, in the late 1980’s, an influx of restaurants and new companies slowly changed the utility of Fulton Market. You may still recognize Pioneer Meatpacking Company and Cougle Commission Company, but this area of Chicago has been almost completely reborn otherwise.
The Fulton Market neighborhood is now commonly referred to as “a foodie’s dream,” and here at Morgan’s on Fulton, we take pride in the culinary roots set a hundred years ago. This building, once used for meatpacking, now boasts of not one, but two, amazing commodities. Nodding back to those Fulton Market roots, Marvin’s Food and Fuel is one of the newest restaurants on the block. Marvin’s Food & Fuel opened in 2020 as a vibey corner restaurant, and a beacon of inclusivity, designed for those looking for something new, affordable, and comforting in the neighborhood. With a tasty American menu and as many cocktails you can drink, Marvin’s is your next night out.
