The Chicago French Market is a year-round, indor marketplace where you can shop from local artisans. Chicago French Market is located in the West Loop in the new MetraMarke development at 131 N. Clinton.
Plant lovers who like to eat plants should check out the market for some unsual fruits and veggies. There's also a small food court where you can purchase some hot meals or sit and eat what you bought in the market. The biggest surprise at the Chicago French Market has to be the gourmet popcorn vendor that isn't Garret. Isn't it against some kind of law to sell popcorn in Chicago that isn't Garret's? Here are some pictures I took on a visit this week. Not the best pics because I was taking them surreptitiously because some vendors didn't seem to keen on the idea of their products being photographed. Considering that foodies are suppose to be bigger photo freaks than us garden bloggers I was a little surprised by this.
Anyway, it is fun to walk through the stalls at the market and check out the meats, fish, breads, pastries and of course take in the free samples. ;0)
