Opened in 2004 by native Chicagoans, Bill and Joy Maheras, Olivia’s Market is a neighborhood grocery in the heart of Bucktown. Like many ideas, the concept of Olivia’s Market was born out of necessity. After living briefly in New York City, the Maheras’ moved back to Chicago and fell in love with the Bucktown neighborhood. The variety of shops and restaurants in Bucktown allowed its residents to “live locally” with one exception – a grocery store. Inspired by the specialty food stores and corner groceries in NYC and fueled with an entrepreneurial spirit, Bill and Joy opened Olivia’s Market.
Our mission is simply to provide excellent customer service and offer the finest quality products at the ease of neighborhood shopping.
