Spring Mix

My first day in Chicago I was introduced to Stanley's Fruit & Vegetables in the Noble Square neighborhood and it immediately reminded me of my Seattle favorite MacPherson's Fruit & Produce.  Both places offer a great selection of fruit and vegetables at an amazing price with many organic offerings. Also parking can be challenging for both places but don't let that keep you from either establishment. I absolutely loved MacPherson's and look forward to loving Stanley's.
