Blackberry Market Launches Opening Week Celebrations in La Grange on May 28
Chicagoland café expands in western suburbs with second location, offering fresh and thoughtful food
CHICAGO, IL – May 21, 2019 – Blackberry Market is pleased to announce the opening of its second location in La Grange, IL, marking the celebratory occasion with grand opening week specials starting Tuesday, May 28 through Friday, May 31. The popular suburban café and bakery, which specializes in handcrafted meals and memorable baked goods, is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Bob and Anna Davidson. Having found overwhelming support and success in their first location in Glen Ellyn, which opened its doors in 2012, the Davidsons seized the opportunity to expand their concept further in Chicago’s western suburbs.
“We’re thrilled to open in La Grange and feel humbled to be welcomed into such a historic and vibrant community,” says owner Anna Davidson.
“We look forward to establishing our roots here with our handcrafted offerings and feel-good environment. We want Blackberry Market to be an idyllic neighborhood spot for any occasion – be it a casual coffee meet-up, quick bite or weekend brunch.”
Blackberry Market fills a void in downtown La Grange, offering an inviting space that accommodates a wide variety of dining preferences. From guests seeking grab-and-go items, to those looking for leisurely meals, the fast-casual café provides a scalable hospitality experience for all to enjoy. The open concept interior boasts an abundance of natural light complemented by charming exposed brick, offering ample table and bar seating as well as cozy booth options. Opening just in time for Chicago’s coveted summer months, Blackberry Market features glass doors on the front façade, which open to the lively patio scene.
The menu boasts a variety of creative handcrafted items, including gourmet sandwiches, refreshing salads, indulgent baked goods, an elevated coffee program serving Intelligentsia, along with a full-service catering menu. Blackberry Market favorites include the always-popular Market Sides, which feature rotating seasonal options such as blackberry kale, chipotle sweet potato and strawberry quinoa, among others. The café’s signature offering is the unforgettable Blackberry Market Cinnamon Roll, developed by head baker Cara Whiting. Originally a sweet and simple menu add, the item became so popular at its first location that the team had to shift production to keep up with the daily demand.
To celebrate the expansion and mark the official opening in La Grange, Blackberry Market features special offerings during opening week, beginning Tuesday, May 28 through Friday, May 31. During this time, guests will receive their choice of a complimentary Market Side, Cinnamon Roll or Intelligentsia Drip Coffee with any purchase and proof of social follow on Instagram (@bberrymarket) or Facebook (/BlackberryMarket).
