French Market in Chicago

French MarketVisiting markets is one of my favorite activities whether I’m traveling or at home.  Chicago has a wonderful little French market for the public.  The “French” title may be a little misleading.  Yes there are cheeses, wines, macarons, and more, but there is also lobster, falafel, and bahn mis.

If you are in the area, and you’re looking for something a little different, check out the market.  If you spend $20 or more, parking is free!  Check out the vendor websites ahead of time to see what tugs at your curiosity.

On a side note, word on the street is that the current ESPN Center in Chi Town will be turned into a giant indoor market.  This is all rumor, so don’t take my word for it, but if it is true, then my dreams are coming becoming a reality!

    Oh, man, those macaroons are calling my name! “Sharon…ne voulez-vous pas démenager à Chicago…simplement pour goûter des macarons ?”

    Looks like a great place – just a bit too far away for me….. Hate to be a stickler, but it is “macaron”, not “macaroon”.

    1. Oh dear, that is not good. Thanks :).
