It’s Seriously Local
All the vegetables are from small, Midwestern family farms within a day?s drive of Chicago. (At other grocery stores around town your produce comes from an average of 1,500 miles away.) In the café, where farmer Abra Berens is the chef, everything on the menu is created from the ingredients on-site.
