More vendors join Chicago French Market lineup

| 1 Comment

Mon dieu! Eight years of developing and delays aside, the Chicago French Market continues to surpass our expectations, and it's not even opening until mid-November.

The European-inspired, year-round indoor market, which will encompass 15,000 square feet in the Ogilvie Metra station, has added 16 more local vendors to its roster. They include Delightful Pastries, whose Fat Tuesday paczki are, for lack of better words, the bomb (that's proprietor Dobra Bielinski in the photo below); Fumare, a purveyor of cured and smoked meats; and Saigon Sisters, two sisters (and their mom) cooking up pho, banh mi and other Vietnamese items.


We admit -- we're not familiar with the bulk of these vendors, who also will offer tacos, Korean food, Belgian fries, freshly squeezed juices, baked goods, popcorn, seasonal produce, vegan food and flowers.

But judging by the previously announced purveyors (the oh-so-French Vanille Patisserie; the adorable nuns of Fraternite Notre Dame; the topnotch Pastoral cheese and wine shop, and South Loop's Canady Le Chocolatier, among them), we also doubt we'll be too disappointed.

Delightful Pastries has some of the best goodies I have ever tasted. They are authentic with a bit of Love added and their Low-Fat selections don't taste Low-fat!

Thanks D Pastries!!
