Local Foods is Chicago’s first wholesale distributor and retailer of strictly local foods from Midwestern farms. The new 18,000 SF W. Willow Street facility in Bucktown includes 12,000 SF of back-of-house dry and cold storage, wholesale distribution, and food processing areas, as well as a market, the Butcher and Larder butcher shop, the Stock Café, and training center open to the public. WA was brought onto the project to provide permitting and construction administration assistance, design-build construction detailing, coordination of equipment, exterior facade and interior design consultation, and millwork design.
