Marcels Culinary Experience
Fab Five!
So many fun and delicious ways to celebrate late summer and the beginning of gorgeous fall days in Glen Ellyn! Fill your calendar with a month long of events: Sounds on the Street, the Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQFall Crawl, and finally, a week filled with surprises at Marcel's to celebrate our FIFTH Anniversary! Keep your eye out for promotions, bonus reward points, raffles and more as our birthday week approaches. Enjoy a special Q+A with Jill, who (luckily for us) turned her lifelong passion into Glen Ellyn's fabulous culinary destination.
Swiss Diamond Fry Pans, Vitamix Blenders and Nespresso machines are our featured promotions.  Liven up your fall routine this month with our Daytime Classes; choose from inspiring morning, midday or afternoon sessions. 
As we blow out 5 candles this month, we remain thankful to each and everyone one of you, our loyal customers who have become friends, for making this milestone happen. Our wish is to continue to Cook, Create & Celebrate together for many more years to come!
(7:00 - 10:30 pm):
Celebrate late summer in Downtown Glen Ellyn at Sounds on the Street. Come out with your family and friends for a free live concert on Main Street and sample the great tastes of Glen Ellyn from participating restaurants.
SAT, SEPT 10th:
Mark your calendars for Glen Ellyn's 8th Annual Backyard BBQ - a festival of Meat & Music! This free event is a celebration for the entire family: smokin' food, friendly competition and great live music. The festivities kick off at noon and the party lasts until 9pm. The GEBYBBQ is an all-volunteer organization and 100% of net proceeds benefit Bridge Communities.
SEPT 15th - 18th:
Fall Crawl is back for the 2nd year! Grab your girlfriends and get ready for a Glen Ellyn Shopping Weekend! Four days filled with grand openings, creative demos, wine tastings, trunk shows and special shopping and dining promotions. The weekend kicks off on Thursday with a fashion show luncheon at A Toda Madre. Art Around Town will be Friday evening and on Sunday afternoon, enjoy a Tasting Tour. More details and tickets at
We will be celebrating all week long, from Monday, September 26th through Sunday, October 2nd.  Stay tuned to your Marcel's emails and our Facebook page to learn of our daily promotions, raffle prizes and fun celebration treats sprinkled throughout the week.  
We're also excited to be sharing our anniversary celebration with our neighbors at AliKat (10 years) and Papier Girl (4 years). To celebrate all of us (and you!) get a punch card at any of the three stores and when you spend $50 at that store, you'll get punched.  Hit all three stores sometime during the month of September and you'll get a gift bag with a little treat from all three of us!
We are also celebrating one year of M Rewards, our loyalty program designed to reward our customers. Earn 1 point for every $1 spent on merchandise or classes (does not apply to gift cards or cookbooks). Collect 1,000 M Rewards points to earn $20 to redeem at either Marcel's or Marché. Simply shop and watch your points grow on the bottom of your receipts.  No need to carry a card!  
Watch for several bonus point promotions throughout our anniversary to earn extra points!

Five ingredients always in my fridge: At least 5 kinds of mustard, various treats from the Marcel's chefs (Paul's Lobster Orzo at the moment), Parmesan cheese, coffee creamer, and things to mix with vodka!
My guilty pleasure: Having a completely lazy day - reading, napping, reading, napping...
Last Purchase: Gifts at the Glen Ellyn Festival of the Arts
I am inspired by: People who can set themselves aside for others.
If I could have one super power, it would be... To make everyone (including myself) be nice.
When I'm Not Working, I'm: Cooking, reading, gardening, and hanging with my family
In 5 Years, I would like to be: A happy, healthy 62 year old
