Yesterday, I had a day off from work and decided to try the SoWa market for the first time, since it’s a travesty that I haven’t gone before. I love open–air markets, being from NYC, they’re all over the place, and I have found some great items in streetside fairs in US and abroad. I love unique things and fresh produce. So we went. There were a few stands there with local veggies, I was hoping for more, but the produce that was available was lovely.
There were even stands selling herb gardens on the cheap, which I plan to buy as soon as I acquire an apartment with more light.
There was artisan breads as well.
There was also a craft markets, where local artists exhibited their work.
I have to say, my favorite part of the market is the Food Trucks.
Food Trucks. How I love thee. I will eat anything off a truck, and there were so many options, I was actually upset at myself for having breakfast.
How could I be so stupid?? Even my old friends Bon Me were there.
Overall, we decided to try Frozen Hoagies, hand–scooped ice cream between home made cookies. Just something to beat the heat.
I was a happy (yet sassy) clam. It was really hot. The ice cream sandwich did a great job of cooling me off though. Visiting the Sowa market inspired me to keep trying out the fun farmer’s markets around the city, so hopefully I’ll be able to carve out some more time before the summer ends to visit some more.
