1. Purchase grocery items such as produce, meats, dairy, artisan breads, or freshly made pasta to cook at home
2. Pick up a ready-made meal from the "What's for Dinner Tonight?" section of the store
3. Sit down for a bite at the coffee shop, gastropub, or casual grill in the store
4. Order a restaurant meal to go.
Having so many different options will allow customers to find the best fit for them, depending on varied schedules and needs. "We want to make it really convenient for people to enjoy food," said Ken Tsang, who is the marketing director for Standard Market. "We realize people are busy and people want good quality."
Standard Market Naperville features a coffee shop, a bar in the store's wine, beer and cheese shop, a gelato bar, a bakery, a dry aging meat locker, a sandwich bar, a full deli and a sushi bar. Large windows also give customers a view into the behind-the-scenes areas where butchers and bakers prepare goods for sale. The new Naperville location has more options as well as larger seating areas than the Standard Market Westmont, which opened in 2011.
Instead of finding aisles packed with overly-processed and packaged foods, customers should expect to find quality, fresh goods, and even some unusual items. Standard Market Naperville will also sell local produce and goods, including: heirloom apples grown in the Midwest, olive oils from Twisted Olive in Naperville, ice cream from Kimmer's in St. Charles, barbecue sauces from Lillie's Q in Chicago, confections from Chocolate Twist in Riverside, gluten-free baked goods from Sweet Ali's in Hinsdale and Flur in Riverside, and bottled beers from Naperville's own Solemn Oath Brewery.
"There's just so much great stuff around here," Tsang says, "it just makes a lot of sense for us to bring in these great-tasting products from local artisans."
So stop in for quality groceries, fresh food, or both. Now open.
