History

The original Garden Fresh Market opened in 1980 on a 1000 square foot lot at 4909 Dempster Street, in Skokie, Illinois. Adi Mor, the founder of Garden Fresh Market, wanted to create a shopping experience that would provide customers with quality foods that are fresh and at a great value. To make his dream a reality, Adi would begin each working day at 2 o’clock in the morning to purchase fresh produce at Chicago's renowned South Water Market and bringing it directly to the store. Adi’s promise to his customers has become Garden Fresh Market’s philosophy and long standing tradition: quality and value.

In 1985, Garden Fresh opened its second store located at 5701 W. Belmont Avenue, in Chicago, Illinois. The 10,000 square foot store generated weekly sales of $6,000 in its first year. By recognizing the need to offer fresh produce and to customize the store to meet the needs of the neighborhood, Adi was able to increase the store’s sales fivefold during its second year.

In 1993 Adi purchased a 60,000 square foot shopping center where Garden Fresh Market opened yet another store at 1786 Hintz Road in Wheeling, Illinois. This was Adi’s first real venture into a full-line grocery store.

In 2000, Adi purchased another store location at 340 Town Line Road in Mundelein, Illinois. The 30,000 square foot modernly designed Garden Fresh Market store opened with great success where its customer base continues to grow.

In 2004, recognizing the need to expand and cater to other communities, Garden Fresh Market opened another store at 275 Skokie Boulevard in Northbrook, Illinois. The store opened with rave reviews and boasts to be one of the most popular locations. More departments were added allowing for its customers to continue enjoying Garden Fresh quality at the great Garden Fresh value.

On January 24, 2007, Garden Fresh Market opened at 965 East Rollins Road, Round Lake Beach, Illinois 60073 to service another growing community of northern Illinois. The most common question asked on the opening day was, “why didn’t you come here sooner?”

Garden Fresh Market’s current store in Mundelein has moved to its new home address at 400 East Town Line Road Mundelein, IL 60060 on February 21, 2006, with an expanded location that will continue to faithfully serve the Mundelein community, as always, since 2000.

Each time a new Garden Fresh location has opened, state of the art equipment has been purchased, specialty departments have been added, and technology has been increased. Yet, throughout the years, Adi’s guiding principle has remained the same: Give customers the quality foods that they like, offer them fresh, and at a great value.
