Advancing the commercial and civic interests of Logan Square.

Welcome to Logan Square!

The Logan Square Chamber of Commerce is an association of over 150 local businesses including restaurants, retailers, doctors, lawyers, beauty salons, realtors etc. As a delegate agency of the City of Chicago, we help existing business owners achieve success, advocate for community improvements and encourage new businesses to locate in our community. Read more about the Chamber and how to contact us.

Volunteers Help Make the Logan Square Farmers Market Shine!

Volunteers are needed to support on-site operations and off-site efforts of the Logan Square Farmers Market. Volunteers play a critical role in the success of our market! On market day, volunteers assist in the set up, customer service, take down, site maintenance, sustainable waste program and other operations associated with running the market. As a thank you, volunteers receive a market pin to highlight their service to the market and many vendors offer a volunteer discount for their products. Other perks include Volunteer Appreciation events at neighborhood & vendor businesses, as well as 40% off yoga classes at Logan Square studio, Tula Yoga, through their YogiCitizen Program. The market makes a fun way to support your local community, get to know your neighbors who share a similar passion and be involved with the local food system.

Go to our Sign Up Genius Page to review and sign up for a Market Shift (Set-Up, Morning, Afternoon and Take Down available), or email our Operations Manager, Rosie Fitz at rosie@loganchamber.org.

Pssst… We tend to need the most help for the afternoon and take-down shifts! Volunteering at the market can help community members gain Service Learning & Community Service hours. Internships may be possible through collaboration with higher education institutions.

Prescription Benefit Program Announced

The City of Chicago announced that Coast2Coast Rx has been selected as the vendor to provide discounts on name brand and generic prescription drugs at no direct cost to the City or participating Chicago residents. Starting today, residents will be able to take advantage of the free benefit by using a discount card available at chicagorxcard.com, public library branches or many aldermanic offices. Additionally, CityKey cards that are issued going forward will include a discount number so that the CityKey can also be used as a resident's prescription benefit card.

The Chicago Rx Card is not insurance and is not intended to replace insurance.

Local Business Survey

The Logan Square Chamber of Commerce and Center For Changing Lives have partnered to conduct a survey to learn more about the needs of businesses in the Logan Square community. The Employer Survey will help to inform the Economic Development & Wellness Committee of LSNA's Quality of Life Plan to get a better understanding of the needs of businesses and organizations in the neighborhood that are looking to hire or have hired in the past few months.

Give them a chance and you may find your new best friend.

The free adoption event runs through July 31st. We are open for adoptions from noon to 6 p.m. daily. CACC is located at 2741 S. Western Av.. Free Parking.
