About

Forty Acres Fresh Market is a startup grocer specializing in selling high quality fresh produce at an everyday low price. Founded in response to the lack of fresh food options on Chicago's West Side, we currently operate as a mobile grocery store and host pop-up markets in underserved communities. We are currently in the process of obtaining a location and funding for a brick and mortar store in Austin, Chicago.  Check out our  Market Schedule Page to see where we will be next. 

Our Mission

Forty Acres Fresh Market's mission is to increase access to affordable, high quality, fresh food in underserved areas. We believe in the power of communities to develop, build, and sustain their own resources and are proud to be part of economic revitalization on Chicago's westside. Join us on in our efforts to ensure that every neighborhood has healthy food options available to all!

A Note From Liz

Hello Forty Acres Fresh Market Family! 

 

I started Forty Acres Fresh Market over two years ago in response to the lack of fresh food options on Chicago's West Side. On January 20, 2018 Forty Acres Fresh Market launched its first pop-up market at Sankofa Cultural Arts and Business to much positive customer feedback. We carried a full selection of fresh fruits and vegetables at an everyday low price.

 

We currently operate pop-up markets in underserved communities and have consistently operated pop-ups on a monthly basis since our January launch. 

 

We are so excited to now offer both daily delivery and subscription services! Our goal is to provide access to high-quality produce that everyone can afford and we are so happy that you get to join us as we grow!

 

In 2020, we look forward to growth that includes expanding into our first brick and mortar retail space, entering new neighborhoods, and investing in community health and wellness.

Produce to the People.
