I come here to get my macaron fix but everything else I've eaten here is fabulous. It's like a smaller version of Reading Terminal in Philly. The French Market never disappoints.

There are many places to get excellent food, fresh and quickly prepared, at the French Market. The seating area is comfortable. You can buy drinks at one place, lunch at another, and dessert at a third. I especially recommend the French Lunchbox which serves a wide variety of delicious stuffed baked potatoes. Everything is fresh and locally sourced. Prices are... More

I had a BBQ grilled cheese from Loop Soup. It was not too badly priced $9. And the Grilled cheese was very good! Took a while to make when it was not that busy, but overall a good lunch. Will go back soon.

This place was a blessing. I had time to kill before boarding the train to Washington & decided to pick up picnic spoils for the trip. Thank goodness I did as the Amtrak food was inedible. I loaded up on delicious fresh ham and cheese, olives, salad and a very fine berry slice for dessert. There's a huge selection to... More

This popular lunch spot has multiple vendors selling all kinds of interesting fare, from stir-fry tofu to lobster rolls, Thai salads to French onion soup. My favorite quick, but very satisfying, snack is the $2 samosa from Klay Oven, (Indian food) located centrally in the space. Hot and crispy on the outside, steamy potato and other good stuff on the... More

The French Market is a great place to stop for lunch and pick up some sweets--especially if you're on a layover at nearby Union Station. The diversity of cuisines available ensures that everyone can find something they love. Plus, the French-themed bakeries are just perfect for those with a sweet tooth! Highly recommend!

One of the favorite lunch spots in the Loop! Basically an upscale "food court", with great variety to choose from, there is something for everyone from basic sandwiches to more exotic fare. In the fresh markets you find fruits and vegetables as well as meat, fish and cheese. This place is awesome! We love the ambiance of the market with... More
