Chicago Bus Trips

Program Description

Ethnic Food Shopping Excursion

Chef Stephanie Godke

Climb aboard the bus and experience a full day of adventure to Chicago’s finest markets, hidden gourmet shops and ethnic neighborhood foodie hot spots. Discover the sights and smells of some of the unique culinary shops of Chicago.

The bus will leave from the northeast corner of the Black Hawk College Outreach Center parking lot at 7 a.m. and return at approximately 7 p.m. We will stop for a Dutch lunch during our excursion and picnic on some of our purchases on the bus ride home. Bring a shopping list of items you can’t find at home or just get inspired by what is fresh in the markets! Bring a cooler or insulated container for your purchases. Wear your walking shoes and dress for the weather!
