An Evening at the Market in Support of FoodShare
My Aunt and I attended an Evening at the Market supporting FoodShare. FoodShare is an amazing organization providing food and food education to promote healthy eating. A great cause! If that wasn't enough there were 2 celebrity chefs, Lynn Crawford & Lora Kirk, a silent auction, not to mention more culinary delights than you can fit in your belly.
I'd never been here before, so I didn't really know what to expect. It was more than I expected with a fantastic variety of shops. My Aunt loves this place, so she insisted on stopping by a few specific places. Each shop was offered a sampling of what they either sell or what you can make with their goods.
There was everything from kangaroo sliders to freshly shucked oysters to cheese fondue to chocolate covered bananas. It was a serious feast! I had no idea this place was so well known. Places like Whitehouse Meats, Schefflers, Busters Sea Cove, Chris' Cheesemongers, Witteveen Meats and more were just a few of our stops made at the market. Each place put out one or more delectable treats to bring you back. All of the shop staff and volunteers were so welcoming! It really made a great first impression.
All around there was various forms of entertainment. They had stilt walkers, fire jugglers, aerial silk acrobatics, a live band and more. There was so much to see and do it was almost sensory overload. It was entertaining all around, literally.
What an amazing experience! All of these vendors coming together for such a good cause. After all of the tasty samplings, how can one NOT go back? I now see why this market is so popular. It has everything anyone could need and the charm to keep you coming back.
Can't wait for my next visit!
