Englewood Fresh Market Will Bring Locally Sourced Produce And Ready-To-Eat Meals To 63rd Street
What started as an impossible dream inched a step closer to reality as Englewood leaders gathered Thursday for the groundbreaking of a new fresh market, the first in a series of new developments hitting the West 63rd Street corridor.
The fresh market, a cooperative enterprise from the Inner-city Muslim Action Network (IMAN), will be an expansion of the organization’s Fresh Market stand, which launched last year. The store will offer locally-sourced produce and ready-to-eat meals prepared by Chicago-area chefs. Training and office space will be on the second floor, with an outdoor garden on the adjacent lot.
