About the client
City Fresh Market is the place to go in Chicago for the best variety of traditional, difficult-to-find foods from Central and Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean and beyond. Think more than 15,000 specialty food and beverage products on the shelf – also including everyday groceries. Artisanal before it was trendy, City Fresh is about delivering fresh, homemade flavor – and they proudly do not cut corners on ingredients. Every morning in the store, you’ll find their expert bakers making an enticing array of old-world pastries, cakes and cookies, like Puslica torte, Keks cake and Sampita. Be on the lookout daily to catch Bojan making phyllo dough for our house-made Burek. Over in the dairy department, our team is whipping up bottles of healthy, drinkable homemade yogurt. And in the meat department, their butchers are busy roasting lamb, grilling meat and fish while you wait – and making Pljeskavica. Our produce department stocks Italian prune plums…and gypsy peppers perfect for stuffing…even fresh-from-the-ground horseradish, calabaza, black radishes and chayote.
City Fresh is a family-run business, and they proudly run this business for their extended family: their customers. Most of their staff is multilingual, and on a first-name basis with their shoppers. That’s why City Fresh is a regular stop for so many locals: they work to make their market a personal experience that’s as extraordinary as their richly diverse community in the Windy City.
