The Market Hall is filled with wonderful vendors, many of them promoting local ingredients. There is a fishmonger, a baker, a butcher and the most heavenly cheesemonger. Our family LOVES cheese.
Mallory has turned into quite the "hipster foodie" now that she has an apartment and can cook for herself. Most college age kids are probably not making Zucchini Quiche or Potato Soup for supper, and let's just say her favorite pastime is wandering the cooking and bakeware aisles of Target.
She and I have always enjoyed going to the Farmer's Market together in the summer. So it is only natural that this Market Hall is the Winter alternative.
Old World Olive Press
Is overflowing with flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegars. One of my favorite olive oils is the Tuscan Herb.
Sweetie-Licious Bake Shoppe
The owner focuses on simply fresh, completely homemade, seasonal ingredients to make her pies, and often goes back to old cookbooks to improve upon the recipes.
Lunchtime was upon us, so we decided to try the taco place.
We both opted for the Shrimp Quesadillas.
I couldn't resist getting a photo of these colorful glass bottles in their beverage case.
Of course turn about is only fair.
After lunch it was time to make our purchases before heading to the mall for some "cute winter clothes" shopping.
We didn't need a lot, but the maple smoked salmon from Fish Lads was calling our name.
These vegetables were begging to be photographed on our way out.
Then a Chai Latte from Simpatico for the wintery drive to the mall.
We will be back during the month long Christmas break, and now that we know what is here, we will plan some menus accordingly.
