After months of anticipation and one construction delay, Plum Market, Old Town's new neighborhood grocer for natural, organic, and specialty items, will officially open its first Chicago location on Wednesday, June 26.
Like the opening of any fancy foods store (or monumental neighborhood project), there's going to be a ribbon cutting at 9AM involving local politicians and the store's founding family. Score free coffee form the 1,200 square foot Intelligentsia within and educate yourself throughout the weekend with demos, raffles, the outstanding jazz singer Elaine Dame and musicians from the Old Town School of Folk Music.
