    I love Stanley's. If you juice a lot this is the place to go to get cheap fruits and veggies. Sometimes you have to pick through stuff but it is totally worth it.

    Best prices and freshest organic fruits and vegetables available in Chicago! I spend 1/4 the amount on my groceries here than any other place in the city.

    Amazing selection of produce. They also have a cooler of chicken from a regional farm, and a decent deli! Not many packaged goods though.

    It was a great place to shop. Calm but crowded for a Sunday. Stanley's Deli in back. Fruits & veggies for awesome prices!! Some items a bit more but not outrageous.

    Stanley allows the Sisters of Notre Dame to sell their French pastries on the weekend! These were the nuns who were featured on the television about surviving the freezing cold. Lemon tarts-beautiful!

    Anybody who says it's expensive to eat organic has never been to Stanley's. This market is crazy cheap—typical finds include a pound of organic carrots for a buck. -RW Read more

    Mike was really helpful. We were looking for the perfect pumpkin for my fondue pumpkin and Mike grabbed one and weighed it for us. What a guy!

    Best place to buy produce if you are going to juice it. Some of the stuff doesn't last long, but it's crazy cheap!

    Holy moly, the homemade guacamole! Other goodies (besides produce, duh): olive oil, roasted peanuts and sunflower seeds.

    If you're not looking for organic produce, make sure you double check what you're picking up. The stuff nearest the door is organic.

    This is essentially a produce liquidator. The stock is good but is at the absolute end of its lifetime

    Produce is generally very ripe, so consume within a day or so. Avoid the urge to stock up.

    Start from opposite side, the left, pick up the organic produce first then get the rest.

    It's best to visit first thing in the morning right when they get the shipments. Also, its way less crowded.

    Don't expect to find everything you need, especially toward the end of the day - once something is gone, it's not getting replenished until after close.

    Fresh fruits and veggies, about 1/3 of which are organic. The prices CANNOT be beat and the in-store music is solid. Can be crazy crowded on weekend days.

    The buy a lot of produce that restaurants don't use, so it sometimes goes bad within 24 hours of purchase.
