In the old days, markets were the center of social life, and aluminum was more precious than gold. Today's deal delivers value and convenience tantamount to Charles Martin Hall's electrolytic process for refining aluminum. For $20, you get $40 worth of groceries at Fox & Obel. This Groupon is only valid toward market purchases, and not toward Fox & Obel's café, catering services, or the Atrium Wine Bar. The market is open every day of the year, excluding Christmas Day.

Fox & Obel Market brings gourmet grocery selection to the City of Big Shoulders with a prog-rock symphony orchestra's worth of quality items from around the world. Fill up your gastronomic gondola with specialty food products in Fox & Obel's World Grocery, including 50-year-old balsamic vinegar, top-tier teas and truffles, and other hard-to-find ingredients, or bookend your namesake sandwich—the Dennis—with hand-shaped and fresh-baked bread from Fox & Obel's artisan bakery. Rig your human-sized mousetrap with l'etivaz cheese, sift through the market's selection of 14 apple varieties in its extensive produce section, or hit up Fox & Obel's butcher shop for your contribution to next week's rabbit-burger taste-off. Fox & Obel also offers gourmet meals to go, best enjoyed with a bottle of grape greatness from the market's wine selection.

Inspired by the Old World markets of Europe and asteroid 10057 L'Obel, Fox & Obel has been serving Chicago since August 2001. Free parking is available for two hours with a $20 purchase. Get your Groupon, hitch your twin oxen to the family wagon, and visit Fox & Obel for an inventory of irresistible eats and ingredients.
