Are there any good Greek grocery stores in the Chicago burbs?

    Produce World in Morton Grove is Greek owned and has 6-8 types of feta, olives, greek cheese etc

    I have not seen fresh phyllo though.

        I've never seen fresh phyllo dough at Produce World or Fresh Farms. I doubt it keeps well and therefore wouldn't be at a grocery. A better bet might be trying to buy it from a Greek bakery.

        Spartan brothers in Niles (i think)is pretty good as well as Harvest time in the city. I know there is another harvest time location in the burbs just not sure where.

          Fresh Farms is a local chain of Greek-owned "International" markets. They have a large selection of Greek products. I've never looked for fresh phyllo but I'd bet it's there (give them a call first).

            Thanks, I also found Minos in Addison, Illinois. I thought Fresh Farms was Russian onwed. You are right that they have lots of international products.
