Our Story

Our Story

That’s what we wanted to offer customers when we built City Fresh Market from the ground up in 2004. We envisioned a place where our parents, who immigrated to Chicago from the former Yugoslavia, could find house-made Cevapi for dinner, Dobos Torta for dessert—and maybe some dried nettle root to prepare an old-world remedy.

City Fresh Market is a neighborhood market and the place to go in Chicago for traditional, difficult-to-find foods from Central and Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean and beyond. Think more than 15,000 specialty food & drink products on the shelf—also including everyday groceries and many artisan-made specialties that we make in-house daily.
