Kosher workers in the Loop can now leave their lunch boxes at home. The Chicago French Market has a new vendor that can easily meet the growing demand for kosher food downtown.


Kotel Kosher is a grab-and-go that offers customers a wide range of kosher deli and grocery products for both dine-in and take-out. All products are certified kosher by the Chicago Rabbinical Council. The Chicago French Market brought in the vendor with the goal of establishing a downtown area where people can buy strictly kosher products, as there are currently very few options available in the commercial area of Chicago.
