There is a cheese vendor that has the most amazing brie layered with apricot and slivered almonds. It looks like a cake. I plan to recreate it one of these days. He also has a great cheese that is made with some red wine. It gives the cheese a crunchy sweet flavor. Sorry I can’t remember the name of the cheese. I do know it was also amazing. Oh and he gives out samples!
The market is where I discovered iced-tea lemonade. I’m not a fan of iced-tea unless Angel makes her sun sweet tea but the combination of the iced-tea with the lemonade rocks. I’m addicted.
I bought my basil and oregano plants that grew taller than Meeshie.
Oh and the fruit and veggies! They are just so good.
I was thinking that this would be a good place for the local mushroom farmer to sell his product. Although when we do go to his farm up the road I always get a very Deliverance vibe. I can honestly say that I will not go there alone. That’s saying a lot.
I’ve been through Cabrini Green at night. I’ve parked in the underground parking at Grant Park for an entire semester for a night class in college. Those two places are not for the faint of heart. Yet they don’t hold a candle the mushroom farm.
Even though I can get a large amount of mushrooms for a song and they last forever, I still won’t go alone. I can hear the dueling banjos when we pull up the long driveway.
Squeel like a pig!
Maybe he should stay away from the market.
