By Mark Wachtler

August 28, 2015. Chicago. (ONN) If the Taste of Chicago spotlights local restaurants, then the City Made Festival in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood can be considered the taste of everything Chicago. The 3rd annual north side fest features local eateries, Chicago-made beers and wines, local bands, local artists, and even the products and services of Chicago businesses, especially those from the Andersonville neighborhood.

The third-annual Chicago City Made Festival will be occurring September 12-13 in the north side Andersonville neighborhood.
