Devon Market's New Web Site


I remember when the grocer's name was "Dino's" before it became "Devon Market."  That was years ago.  Now, this eclectically - stocked grocery store has its own web site. 

The site features weekly ads, coupons and a brief introduction for those new to the supermarket ('Devon Market virgins') .

For those not familiar with "Devon Market" it is located at 1440 West Devon Avenue (at the Greenview CTA bus stop) in Chicago's Roger's Park neighbourhood.  While you're there, pick up a loaf of their warm Balkan, baked bread (often located at the checkout lanes).  I dare you NOT to eat it all before you get home!

Besides outstanding bakery products, the grocery store also offers good quality produce, fish and seafood, a deli, and prepared foods, such as sushi,  hot rotisserie chicken and some of the best tamales I have ever eaten. 

As far as economy goes, I  have often found Devon Market's produce, meats and poultry comparable to, or even cheaper than, ALDI.  I have walked out of that place with 4 bags of groceries, for under $30.  Compared to the major supermarket chains, I consider that a steal!

Fried Chicken in a Gas Station?

I know.  A Citgo gas station is a weird place to find a fried chicken joint.  Let's face it, unleaded gasoline doesn't exactly complement chicken; but this is where you will find some of the best fried chicken on the planet Besides fried fowl, Krispy Krunchy Chicken, at 1840 W. Peterson Ave. in Chicago, also offers up killer honey - covered cornbread.  They have received positive feedback on Yelp.

Visit the folks at Krispy Krunchy Chicken.
