In the early 2000s, we moved to Bucktown and immediately fell in love with the neighborhood. It was a much different retail landscape then. There were a few pioneers that paved the way for a variety of unique retail shops and restaurants, all locally owned and operated. Bucktown had everything we needed to “live locally” with one exception – a grocery store.
“Wouldn’t it be great if there was a corner grocery store that was stocked with great quality products? Wouldn’t it be great if it had all the ingredients to make a wonderful meal, favorite staples to fill your pantry, and flowers for the perfect hostess gift?” Then one day, simple musings morphed into something…more.
Fueled with an entrepreneurial spirit and a love of delicious food, we opened Olivia’s Market in August 2004. Since then, the store has grown its staff, product offerings, and customer base, but our mission has always remained the same: Provide excellent customer service and offer the finest quality products at the ease of neighborhood shopping. Thank you to all of our customers past, present, and future who support Olivia’s Market!
