Necessity Baking Co.
The best part of these breads is their size: They’re mostly smaller loaves—French boules, challahs, Asiago-tinged rounds. The worst part is you’re going to pay for each bite.

Saigon Sisters
Unfortunately, most of the made-to-order options at the French Market need serious work. SS is the one exception, speedily cranking out high-quality versions of banh mi, including one with Vietnamese pork meatballs.

Vanille Patisserie
There are other croissants and macarons in this building, but the flawless pastries from Vanille (which also has a location in Lincoln Park) are the ones you want.

4

Fumare Meats
Dick McCracken’s selection of locally made smoked meats is plenty intriguing. Thankfully, there are samples.

5

Canady le Chocolatier
There is nothing quite like a box of Michael Canady’s eclectic, precious chocolates—particularly a box that contains the lemoncello truffle.

131 N Clinton St (312-575-0306). Mon–Fri 7:30am–7:30pm; Sat 8:30am–6pm (closed Sun). Vendor opening times vary.
