Today, I went to Union Market to enjoy some of the culinary arts winners known as the Good Foods Awards. It was a cloudy day but Union Market was already bustling. There were people everywhere that wanted to participate in the event.
As you can see, Union Market also has a thriving Farmer's market. All the vegetable and fruits are fresh from local markets. The colors are amazing!!!
First stop, of course, was to get coffee. MadCap (http://madcapcoffee.com/) had some of the best coffee that I have ever tasted. It had no sugar or cream, but was not bitter at all. I think that I have found my new coffee of choice!!!
Of course, I had to stop by the chocolates!!! The chocolate vendors were out of this world. The top photo is from Zoe's Chocolate (http://zoeschocolate.com/). Below is the chocolate from Esczau (http://www.escazuchocolates.com/). Both were amazing, but I loved the salted chocolate from Esczau the best.
One of my favorite's was the preserves. O..M..G!!!!, the Farmer's Daughter had the best preserves this side of the hemisphere!!!
I just wish that I could have given a shoutout to all the vendors. Everyone was delicious and I definitely have everyone's business cards from the event. I look forward to further tasting more of these culinary dishes!!!
