Jefferson Market and Cakery

Growing up on the Old West Side, I've been going to this establishment for years. As a kid, it was fondly known as Johnnies Market. A husband and wife ran the market for years and I was a patron for all things from jaw breakers to Strawberry Crush. Currently, the market is known as Jefferson Market and Cakery. It's a GREAT place and owner, Mary, is a joy to work with. Be sure to check them out when you're on the Old West Side.
