Join us at our Chicago French Market outpost for this FREE food & wine festival featuring more than 80 culinary producers from around the world.
You’ll have the chance to meet talented and award-winning artisans, experience their products and celebrate small batch food, beer, spirits and wine.
Stop by our outpost at Chicago French Market, and sample wines from the Balkans along with Burek and other traditional European specialties that we are known for making in-house at City Fresh Market!
City Fresh Market participated at the Fete night market on Thursday, April 3, 2013.
We sampled and sold an assortment of our European specialties to the more than 1,000 food and design enthusiasts who attended the evening event.
Think Ajvar, Burek, Cevapi and traditional Turkish pastries like Baklava and Kataifi…a good time was had by all!
We hope to participate at the next Fete night market when it is announced!
On March 13, 2013, we collaborated with acclaimed Greek Islands Restaurant on a cooking demo at our Chicago French Market outpost. Chef Peter Kappos prepared pan-fried smelts, and offered tastings to our customers. Guests are invited to visit Greek Islands and order pan-fried smelts from the menu, or pick up smelts at City Fresh Market and prepare the recipe at home.
Watch the TV video clip here, and find our favorite recipe for pan-fried smelts.
On February 9, 2013, City Fresh Market participated in Eurofest 2013!

Guests enjoyed cooking demonstrations, special tastings and live European music throughout the day at our outpost in Chicago French Market.

We welcomed hundreds of guests to our inaugural $1 Burek Day on November 29, 2012, at City Fresh Market.
A chance to celebrate the Burek, and introduce all Chicagoans to this traditional street food of the Balkans that we make in-house from scratch at City Fresh Market.
City Fresh Market was a proud sponsor and host at the celebrated Food Film Festival, a competitive film festival focused on food held each year in Chicago, Charleston and New York.
A blast, and we hope to participate again and again!
In 2011, City Fresh Market celebrated seven years in business and thanked our customers with a full week of free tastings, cooking demonstrations and exclusive offers—including a visit with Bill Kurtis, CBS anchor and founder of Tallgrass Beef
On June 4, 2011, Bill Kurtis visited City Fersh Market and autographed copies of his book, The Prairie Table cookbook. Shoppers who made a $100 or more purchase received a free autographed copy of the cookbook, and everyone enjoyed meeting Mr. Kurtis while enjoying a grilling demo with Chef Matt Eversman who shared tips for grilling grass-fed Tallgrass Beef available at City Fresh Market.
