Say it with us, “Produce!” With our company beginning on the back of Chicago fruit trucks in the 1960’s, it is no surprise that produce has always been the heart and soul of what we do. Unlike many other grocery stores, Fresh Farms categorizes itself as a produce Market where our customers come to find the highest quality produce at the most competitive prices. With over 200 years of combined experience, we employ the most skilled produce buyers in Chicago that wake up before dawn every morning to taste, test, and purchase the best produce in order to bring it to our markets that same day. It has been said that, “When passion and skill come together, a masterpiece is formed”; our produce is a testament to this notion and we are proud to share it with you!
The term Deli, or Delicatessen, finds its root word in the Latin adjective delicatus, meaning, “giving pleasure, delightful, pleasing”. In the United States, the Jewish Deli’s of New York City gained fame for their selections of cold cuts. One will never find a deli of European origin in Chicago, or the country, that is as vast and complete as ours!
Our delightful European Delis offer a vast selection of imported and domestic products that will intrigue your mind as it stimulates your palate. Although we define ourselves as an International Produce Market, no other retail grocery store in Chicago can match the selection, or the quality, of our European Deli.
Saving money while buying dry fruits, nuts, and anything else that has a long shelf life in bulk shouldn’t be kept to produce-retailers such as ourselves; we want to extend the savings to you too!

3 Shepard’s Cafe: Coming soon to Wheeling and Niles Locations!
Our café was named after the three Svigos brothers who began our company, all of which started off as young boys herding sheep in the mountains of Greece until immigrating to the United States. Although our café is named after the Svigos brothers, it offers more than Greek coffee and a relaxed setting. Our café was created in order to extend the Hellenic cultural stigma of relaxation, good food and even better coffee to our customers while offering an oasis within Fresh Farms where you can take a break from your hectic day, grab a bite to eat, or just sit back and enjoy a beautiful shot of espresso. Although the café is named after a bunch of Greek sheepherders, it offers far more than Yia Yia (Grandma) could ever offer in the village; look below to see a taste of what our café offers!
