As I’ve mentioned, I went to the Chicago French Market on Saturday with my friend, Jake. We had a blast checking out all the stands and we I sampled a lot of delicious food including Sweet Miss Giving’s white chocolate and cranberry cookie and a crepe filled with brie, figs, and arugula.

The space was packed. But it’s nice that they are open Monday-Saturday so you can go at less popular times if you like. Overall it reminded me of the Green City Market in Lincoln Park with less produce stands. And having Pastoral there didn’t hurt either. As for the produce prices, I felt that most of it was less expensive than Green City, almost on par with grocery stores.

And my favorite feature was the giant wall mural which made you feel as though you were eating under the Eiffel Tower- check out the pictures below to see what I mean.

    Looks like a fab time… I am a sucker for french butter, so I sure would have picked up a brick of that. And you are right, that wall mural is so cool!

  2. You’re making my stomach growl! That crepe sounds amazing.

    What on earth is in a Bill Clinton cookie?

  3. I took Pete’s family there Saturday too! I had a croissant made by my teacher Chef Dimitri, he has a pastry shop named Vanille at the market and in Lincoln Park. I believe the photo you have with the four types of mousse cakes are his!

  4. This place looks amazing. I can add it as a place to see when I visit Chicago one day. I love the photo of the mums, and those croissants have my mouth watering.
