5 places to get good cheap produce in Chicago

Produce can be expensive at Big-Box stores like Jewel and Whole Food. Mariano's is starting to uptick their prices as well.  And while the Farmer's Markets will be here soon, they can get pricy as well.

What you may not realize is that there are tons of smaller family run grocery stores.   They're not located in the Green Zone and some are hard to get to if you do not have a vehicle.  But they are worth a visit, especially if you are trying to save some dough.  Speaking of dough, many even have their own bakery!
