Our very own Dill Pickle Food Coop in Logan Square was named first runner up for best local grocer in the Chicago Reader’s annual ‘Best Of’ Edition.  Flashback to our dreaming about a coop in Chicago here, its design here, and opening here.

At long last, the Dill Pickle Food Coop is open for business at 3039 West Fullerton Avenue in Logan Square.  Join us at the grand opening celebration this Saturday, December 12, 11:30a and on.  We will be on stage to deliver some words of encouragement to our fellow picklers around 1:15p.  See you then!

UPDATE 12/11:  While I’m flattered to be designated owner, I am only 1/540th of the management team, however.  It got fixed.  Check us out in Timeout Chicago here.

The shelves are being stocked and final inspection is mere days away (see update below).  Good food coming to Chicago soon NOW!

UPDATE: We have passed our final building inspection!!!  Opening imminent!  Celebration ensues.

dplogoSlated to open late this summer, Chicago will welcome its first food coop.  While Chicago’s summer farmers’ markets are great, the Dill Pickle Coop will house community supported farming on a daily basis.  Like most coop’s around the country Dill Pickle, located in Logan Square, will be a member-owned food store specializing in real, local, organic, and nutritious food.
