French Market Adds New Vendors

Well, Hello French Market. Don't you look dapper on this nice Saturday.

The Metra French Market announced the addition of four more vendors. Green City Market shoppers are already familiar with Zullo's. Their new shop will sell traditional pizzas, assorted pastas, panini, pastries, sandwiches, soups and other Italian specialties that change daily. Another farmers market staple, Olives4You, will specialize in marinated and stuffed olives, tapenades, assorted pita breads, vinegars, olive oils and eventually homemade hummus and fresh, ready-to-eat specialties.

Gramp's Gourmet Foods started as a pickling hobby in Scales Mound, IL. Their offerings at the French Market will include gourmet boxes for special order, 12 varieties of both sweet and dill pickles, Martha’s Sweet Hot Mustard, a variety of pickled beets and Gramp’s signature drink: Apple-Pie-In-A-Jar. Pappardelle’s Pasta has provided area restaurants, local markets and specialty shops with small batch, artisan pastas made with 100% durum semolina flour for 26 years. This will be their first retail location in the Chicago area. [Inbox]
