What’s Local – Plum Market Chicago – A Tease

July 1, 2013 at 8:02 am

First Glance

We mentioned a few months ago that the Michigan based grocery store, Plum Market, approached the Local Beet about advertising. We gladly said yes because we knew Plum from some visits to Ann Arbor. We knew from those visits that Plum, like us, likes it local.

Plum debuted its Chicago store last week. They got the word out, and a lot of people showed up for free Intelligensia coffee, too many samples of candy, and the splendid opportunity to purchase the breads baked by Zingerman’s Bakehouse. We were there too, with our special eye out for local food. Unfortunately, between the bedlam and some other commitments, we could only get some glances around the aisles. We took a few pictures, grabbed two loaves of Zingerman bread and found a few other staples like Meyer’s dish soap. ┬áThe rest will have to come for another day. Soon.
