Chicago's Daley Plaza hosted a Farmers Market on Sept. 1 featuring the Wendy's Baconator dome.
On Sept. 1, The Wendy’s Company set up an inflatable Baconator-shaped dome in Chicago’s Daley Plaza to greet Farmers Market patrons.

The 15-ft. tall dome was designed to look like the chain’s Baconator sandwich and offered visitors lounge chairs and a 180-degree bite photo booth to capture snaps of the fans. Nearly 1,000 Baconators were given away to attendees.

The Baconator consists of two ¼-lb. beef patties topped with six pieces of thick-cut applewood smoked bacon and three slices of cheese. The suggested retail price of the Baconator is $6.36 while dieticians might have a suggested workout routine of a vigorous walk around Daley Plaza for the recipients of the hefty burger.
