Whether you're looking for cheese, charcuterie, locally made jams, or other gourmet products, you'll find what you need at these Chicago food markets.
One of my favorite places to peruse, The Spice House has all the basics, plus special blends and hard to find spices. The Greek seasoning is a permanent fixture in my kitchen.
A favorite spot for brunch or lunch. The Cuban sandwich is made with brisket and giardiniera and the cupcake pancakes are a signature.
Go for a sandwich (like the turkey reuben) and pick up a variety of locally made sauces, wine, and baked goods. There are multiple locations, so you're never too far from The Goddess.
The two locations of Provenance are a food-lover's dream: a great selection of wine and beer, pickles, crackers, jams, meats. You can build a fantastic picnic in one visit.
Fantastic spot in Oak Park - the market offers cheese, wine and other treats, while the restaurant has lovely sandwiches and other dishes.
Terrific butcher case and sandwiches. Check the shelves for specialty food items you won't find elsewhere in the city.
A favorite - the duck sandwich is amazing, as is the selection of cheese and wine.
It has a great selection of locally made products along with fruits and veggies. A little cafe area in the front has free wi-fi and roomy tables for working.
Gene's is a Chicago institution - I stock upon different brats and love the pierogis.
