Five don't-miss stands at the French Market

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.

3

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.
