Shop Small Day 240: Havmore! Foods

Imagine this. You’re driving home from work and remember you have nothing for tomorrow’s lunches. The last thing you want to do is drive out of your way to stop at a mega grocery store where you’ll have to wait in line forever. Good thing there is Havmore! Foods.

While it may seem like a convenience store, it’s really more of a mini-market. You can pick up milk, bread, and eggs, but they also have a nice fresh produce section. For the size of the store, they also have a decent number of gluten-free items (they’re still expanding their inventory of organic too).

My favorite feature, though, is the Boar’s Head deli. Need a pound of meats or cheeses? They have fantastic prices, even below some bigger supermarkets.

Want them to make a sandwich for you? Not a problem. They’ll even deliver with a $20 purchase.

Havmore! Foods has only been open about four months, but they have a great concept, there really are no other deli’s (or mini-markets) in this south Naperville area.

imageThe owner, and employee, were very helpful showing me some of their unique products. They highly recommended their curry sauces; since I was making chicken for dinner anyway, I figured it’d be a nice change. The coconut curry didn’t disappoint.

It was a hit with the whole family.

I think this may have become my new shop for school lunch meats/cheese. We’ll definitely try more of their dinner options next time too.

Unfortunately, they don’t have a website yet, so you’ll have to call for hours.
