Morning at the Market

What could be better than a morning spent exploring at the Westside Market? ( This past Saturday morning a friend of mine and I enjoyed breakfast at the Market Café before heading into the hustle and bustle of the market crowd. Mimosas and Eggs Benedict (with French fries!) was a delicious treat, but did you know the café also has a large wine menu and may be a nice place to catch happy hour some evening?

After breakfast we hit the cheese stand (Mackenzie Creamery, saffron goat cheese is out of this world), the market coffee bar, the bread stand and some of the various produce vendors (for fresh cherries!) Not only is the market a place to practice your “haggling” skills it is filled with some really great graphics. As a designer I find my eye drawn to the simple, unique and visually bold works of art, who knew watermelon cartons, strawberry crates and boxes filled with cabbage and apples could be works of art unto themselves. Check it out.

So next time you wakes up early on a Saturday morning and are looking to explore a food fantasy and a untapped art gallery, take a spin down to West 25th and Lorain Ave. It is a delight for the senses. :)

I like going to the Market because I always run into somebody I know. It's great to see a good friend and chat about all the wonderful food over a nice cup of java. I think its fun to discuss all the sweet and tasty things. I kind of want to go there right now! :)

I totally agree. I always run into someone I haven't seen in awhile on a morning trip to the market. Even if it's just a quick passing by "hi there." Connecting with friends and connecting to the city is what makes a trip to the market a special treat. :)
