Help on Bringing Chicago Polish Food Home to SF

Here's the chow dilemna: my wife and I are visiting Chicago for a weekend, leaving on a Monday evening. We will not have a car and will be staying in the Loop. She leaves from Midway and I leave from O'Hare (long story). We were planning to take the CTA out to the airports. We'd like to be able to stop at a fantastic Polish deli that is easy to get to on the way out to one of the airports.

We'd like to buy some smoked course-cut kielbasa, frozen pierogi, and frozen bigos (and anything else you'd highly recommend).

In the past (when on business), I've taken a cab, had them stop for 10 mins in Avondale, quickly loaded a cooler, and headed on to O'Hare. However, I'd rather not have to pay a lot of money for a cab if there is a way to do it off of public transit...

Help Chicago Chowhounds! Where should we go and how should we get there?
