eat.drink.shop local

17 Dec

I’ve made discovery! Just miles from home, a new “indoor european style market” has popped up out of the blue, just in time for the holidays. It channels all good things…local food/wine/beer/spices, local crafters, rustic decor and a “shop local” mentality.

Prompted by a visit from out-of-town family this weekend, we paid a visit to the SoNo Marketplace and were pleasantly surprised. Some highlights:

  • a girl wandering with hot, garlicky clam samples! what service!
  • toffee almond dark chocolate graham crackers (king of treats?!)
  • concoct-your-own oatmeal (steel cut oats and EVERY mix-in under the sun)
  • gorgeous jewelry in all price ranges
  • cutest kids clothes (imagine the grinch, hand embroidered in felt onto a toddler tee)
  • gorgeous handmade leather bags (not currently in the budget, but I’ll be back)
  • a bar, tastefully stuck right in the middle of it all
  • christmas trees and wreaths for sale outside, a seasonal treat (I assume the market will extend outside in warmer months)

We’ll be back. Nothin’ But granola bars WILL be a new hiking staple. At least until I conquer the Tusk & Cup recipe myself.
