Chicago's Midway Airport to open ‘Central Market' with new concession stands, restaurants

New concessions and a revamped “Central Market” food court at Chicago’s Midway International Airport will soon open back up to travelers.

According to a press release from the Chicago Department of Aviation, a renovated “Central Market” will be unveiled at Midway Airport at 11 a.m. Wednesday. The market, officials said, is the “final major phase” of a $400 million airport modernization program.

Earlier this year, the Chicago Tribune reported the revamped food court, which been closed since the spring, will offer concessions including Connie’s Pizza, M Burger and Beecher’s Handmade Cheese.

Mayor Brandon Johnson is expected to attend the announcement.

O’Hare International Airport has recently seen the opening of several new restaurants, including Chick-fil-A, Protein Kitchen + Bar, and an outpost of popular Chicago restaurant The Dearborn.
