My wife and I decided to try Village Market Place for the first time this week. First off, I noticed that the store is extremely crowded with products cluttering the isles. It is truly single file especially if you want to push a cart. We were disappointed in the selection of produce to begin compared with our old standby Market Place on Oakton also in Skokie. We were not able to locate any organic produce or staff to inquire about.

We bought some peaches and brought them home to find out they were inedible and mealy. I tried to return them a few days later and the manager on duty told me since I didn't have my receipt that I was obviously lying and that they had to be at least 2 weeks old. I said, it was fair that they wouldn't take them back without a receipt, but I would like to try the piece of fruit before I bought peaches again. He told me, ??that if I want to try it, I had to buy it?. I asked, ??How can I tell if the fruit is any good? He said, ??It is because I buy it everyday?.

I then proceeded to buy 1 peach so I could try it again. I went across the street to Starbucks to wash it off and took a bite. Sure enough, the ripe looking and feeling peach was mealy and not up to par. I went back to the store and wanted to show the manager. He was in the parking lot yelling at customers that were trying to park as the delivery truck was parking. I waited and told him politely that I would to discuss his peaches. He told me to wait and then walked back in the store and left me outside waiting. I had to track him down in the store and showed him the peach. I told him that I respect his business and obviously he had a great business, as it was so busy and crowded. I told him that this peach I had just bought (I was holding my receipt) was not good. He again had no desire to speak with me and he walked off. I thought he was going to refund my money. I told him that I??m not interested in a refund, but I would like some help picking out my fruit. He said, ??Thanks for the advice? he said, and walked off rudely again.
I??m really not that mad about the $4 I originally spent on the fruit. I just frustrated by the principal of rudeness and the way this guy is running the business. I was truly hopeful about The Village Market Place as it is closer to my house, but now I will not be returning, and sticking with my old standby Market Place on Oakton. This is truly a wonderful, positive, and great fruit market with friendly staff and awesome peaches!

This location is has very fresh produce and meats. I've gotten fish and meats here, and always been pleased. Ethnic foods are their specialty, and I never tried them - I'm not that adventurous.
