A tour of the Farehouse Market in the Sterling Bay developed multitenant complex in Chicago

New B&I dining location opens offering plant-based foods and grab-and-go selections.

The Sterling Bay retail development firm recently revitalized the former Montgomery Ward catalog house at 600 W. Chicago Ave. in Chicago. The project included adding a retail/dining mix called Farehouse Market that is operated by local foodservice management company Quest Food Management Services.

Among the more than a dozen tenants in the 1.6-million-square-foot building where some 7,500 individuals work are online deal vendor Groupon, telecommunications firm the Big Ten Network and chocolate/cocoa manufacturer Barry Callebaut.

Farehouse Market includes a dual-sided coffee/cocktail bar; a retail market that sells some gourmet packaged goods, including beer and wine, as well as fresh foods ranging from charcuterie to a salad bar, and packaged grab-and-go selections; and three restaurants that offer customized, to-order selections ranging from personal pizzas and plant-based bowls to burgers and sandwiches. A more detail look at the operation is available at our full story about Farehouse Market.

Here is a pictorial look at Quest’s operations.
