How to Find these 6 Hidden Gems at Foodease

Sep 5, 2018

Foodease Market in Water Tower Place has been a Michigan Avenue staple for more than seven years now! Sure, its famous for the endless salad bar that we all know and love, but in case that’s the only thing you’ve enjoyed at the market, we’re here to give you the inside scoop on some of the hidden gems of Foodease that you may not have known existed.

TO TAKE HOME: Hit the Freezer

Jeni's ice cream at foodease

Did you know that you can snag a pint of Jeni’s ice cream or a pan of Lou Malnatis frozen pizza to take home (no shame if you choose to take both, we’d all do the same)? These, plus more of your favorite food items from local Chicago restaurants, your favorite Lettuce spots (past and present) and vendors are available at Foodease. Tucked right behind the salad bar and on the way to the grab & go section is where you’ll find ’em.

TO SIP ON: Check out the Wine Shop

Wine Shop at FoodeaseThe wine shop in Foodease is stocked with more than 100 different wines, many of the bottles under $20! Grab yourself a bottle (or two) for your next gathering or just to enjoy on your couch while watching your favorite reality show. If you’re more of a beer drinker, you can mix-and-match your own six pack of craft beers from local breweries including Two Brothers Brewing Company and Lagunitas Brewing Company.
