At long last, those who are on-the-go in the area surrounding the iconic Merchandise Mart will have a convenient, yet quality-oriented one-stop-shop for snacks and treats in the form of the newly opened Merchant’s Market. Located on the 15th floor of the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza River North, this grab’n’go style snack bar offers an easy option for food, drink, and travel accessories to hotel guests, building tenants, as well as locals.
Featuring everything from made-to-order Lavazza (Italy’s favorite coffee) and freshly baked Home Run Inn Pizzas to Terry’s Toffee and Bee’s Knees Food Co. snacks, there are exquisite options to please any palate. Also offered are in-house prepared signature sandwiches, paninis, salads, soups, and carry out items like beverages, chips, ice cream, beer, and wine. Even if all that isn’t enough to convince you that it’s worth checking out, the colorful candy carousel welcomes guests as they enter the market, offering candy, nuts, granola and more.
While this market is primarily a quick shop for those busy days, don’t be afraid to cozy up to the window counter dining space where there are spectacular views of the Chicago River and skyline. Adjacent to the Merchandise Mart and merely blocks from the Magnificent Mile shopping center, the Merchant’s Market is perfect whether you’re on-the-go or taking a breather from a hectic work schedule.
Open 7 days a week, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., the market is at your convenience so stop by to see for yourself. For more information on the Merchant’s Market, go to http://www.martplaza.com/dining
