Cheap Fresh Produce

Seth Zurer | Jul 20, 2000 01:11 PM

Where do I find it in Chicago? I know that Whole Foods has terrific produce (at a horrific price), but the goods at the other major supermarkets have been enormously disappointing. I am hoping that someone knows about some store that is otherwise indistinguishable from your average bodega but has inside a cornucopia of fresh fruits and vegetables. The stores around my house do generally have fresh cilantro and hot mexican peppers, some mangos, but for apples or other general stuff-it has been very difficult. Maxwell Street is OK but doesn't really focus on fruits and vegetables.

So I beg you for your secret knowledge of farmer's markets, wholesale markets, dingy fruit stands with perfect peaches, anywhere in the city, though preferably within walking distance of Chicago and Damen.
