I have been going to the VPM since 2007 when I was trying to reduce our family's food budget without reducing the quality of food that my wife and I serve our family. To that point (1999-2007), we frequented two of larger chain stores, one of which claims to be 'Chicago's local grocery store since way-back and will continue to be BLA BLA BLA'. That being said, what originally attracted me to the Villa Park market were the incredible prices on produce and deli items. However, when I visited the Market, I realized that the freshness of the items and cleanliness of the store easily outpaced that of the local former tea-merchant chain here in Chicagoland. THEN- I discovered the butcher's counter and the catering kitchen! I have relied on the catering kitchen for multiple parties serving everything from Latino food to deli trays and have always been over-the-top pleased with the quality and quantity of my purchases. The butchers will cut and trim you any slice of meat to the exact thickness that you desire, even at sales prices! If you are planning on throwing a party or want to throw a BBQ for a boss or client, GO SEE THE VP MARKET BUTCHERS AND CATERERS AND YOU CANNOT GO WRONG! I am not affiliated with the store- I am just a grateful customer! Join the smart-shoppers in this area and discover the Villa Park Market!
This store is truly a hidden gem! I cannot believe the prices and freshness in the produce and deli sections- the first thing that brought me in the store back some years ago. I was/am still amazed by the cleanliness of the store itself, far cleaner than any major chain in our area. Then I discovered the helpfulness of the staff, particularly the peeps in the butcher department and the catering kitchen. Whenever I have to entertain and need a particular cut of meat, I know that my guys behind the meat counter will cut and trim me any steak or chop at any thickness that I need at fantastically-priced rates! DO NOT underestimate this Butcher Department if you are going to barbeque for clients or a boss and need good meats!! I have depended on their catering for multiple parties, serving everything from deli plates to Latino food- EVERY TIME AN A+!!! My family has been relying on VPM since 2007 for our grocery needs and we are so thankful to be able to drive right past that large "Chicago's grocery store" every time without batting an eye! Keep up the good work my friends!!!!!
I agree with all the previous comments. My family & I have shopped here since they opened. They have always had friendly staff, many who have been here since it opened ten years ago. Their prices for produce & lunch meat can't be beat. We moved 2 towns over & still shop here because we can't find anywhere else that compares to the quality & price. Love the remodel. We shop here for all our produce & lunch meat. most of the time you can find some great pricing in their meat department as well. If you haven't tried them yet you're missing out.
I have to say even with all the other places coming in with new stores. We still come here. None of the others can measure up to VP Fruit Market. Friendly staff, clean and great food and especially prices. Thanks
Love your store....great pricing - good selections
Love the selections, very clean (love that), friendly staff, reasonable prices, close to home. I do my shopping every week!!!!!
