Elburn Market, Inc. in downtown Elburn, IL, has been a meat market since 1904.
In 1954, selling high quality fresh meat and processing meat for farmers, Robert and Phyllis Ream bought the business and operated the store in rural Kane County. As the area started to change, Ream’s Elburn Market has evolved into a specialized meat market with which no other store in the area can compare.
Around 1980, Randy Ream, Robert and Phyllis’ son, started to learn the art of smoked meats and sausages. The store has become well known throughout the entire Chicago area for their award-winning sausages and smoked meats.
