Visiting Chicago...looking for markets.

GhostofaFlea | Jun 16, 2012 09:49 PM

I'm visiting Chicago this summer, and am planning to use the opportunity to pick up some ingredients unavailable in the area I live. I know I could just buy stuff online, but that deprives me of nosing around and finding new things.

The thing is, I really don't know where to look--I'm only familiar with the markets and Cermak and Devon.

What I'm looking for are markets that cater to South American (specifically Peruvian), Mexican, and West African tastes, and would thus have spices and produce specific to those cuisines.

If anyone can provide recommendations/addresses, I'd really appreciate it.
