77th & State market area?
Date: February 19, 2015 11:49AM
Several wholesale grocer operations on the east side of State St. around 77th make it look like that was once a wholesale market area, a bit like South Water Market—but perhaps more focused on prepackaged groceries than produce or meat. My best guess is that it primarily served independent "corner groceries" all over the old South Side, and that there were additional operations on the west side of State that were lost to the Dan Ryan Expwy.
Can anyone offer more information or memories?
