Devon Market has lots and lots of cheap, delicious Eastern European bubbling mineral water.

For the considerable population of folks from eastern Europe who now call Chicago home, a portion of czernina or a tall glass of bubbling mineral water may help to soothe the homesick sads when an actual trip to the motherland is impossible. Devon Market (1440 W. Devon) is your standard neighborhood grocer, but for one major difference: It stocks a great amount of eastern European foods, including a massive selection of imported mineral waters like Kiseljak from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Borsec from Romania. Near the front door is a display stocked with a bounty of the clear bubbly, perfect for scrubbing the palate clean after a plateful of kiszka and pierogi. Cheap, too—nine liters can cost all of $5.99, which puts the much pricier San Pellegrino and Gerolsteiner Sprudel to shame.
