“There's something about shopping small that can't be explained.” - Zhamese

I started Fresh On-Demand Market to meet the needs of local businesses, like my own, that were hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Local events and vending opportunities being shut down, it was harder than ever for small businesses to reach their community during a time like this.

I knew if I was experiencing this, others had to be as well.

This is when Fresh On-Demand Market was born. Born out of love, curiosity, and a solution to small businesses AND the communities they serve.

Since its creation, Fresh On-Demand Market has become so much more. We are only scratching the surface and I am SO HAPPY you've come by to join us.

Our Story

Fresh On-Demand Market began as a solution for local Chicagoland area businesses that wanted to continue to reach our local neighborhoods and customers during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We opened on April 24, 2020 with our people in mind. 

Fresh On-Demand Market is your one-stop-shop for all things local. You can find custom handmade greeting cards, baked goods, artisan foods, face & body products, and so much more.

Here you can be certain that you are supporting a local business that thrives from YOU, our neighbors.

Since opening, we have seen some amazing growth and have grown beyond the Chicagoland walls, serving communities throughout the U.S. but our message and purpose still holds true. 

We thank you for stopping by and hope you find something unique, beautiful, or flavorful here at Fresh On-Demand Market.
