Lunch at the Market

I love our summer routine of going to the Charlottetown Farmer’s Market for lunch. It is great to go for a walk in the middle of the day and to see so many familiar faces. The market makes me happy. My only issue is choosing what to have. Everything is so good that I have trouble choosing.

Coffee comes first at the Caledonia House/Coffee Corner. They have wonderful double lattes. I can even get my almond milk. If you just need regular coffee you can get that too. If it is a really warm day I will go for a lemonade at the Hand Popped Kettle Corn booth (as I can get it without sugar). Alternatively, I will grab an ice tea lemonade mix from Lady’s Baker’s Tea Trolley.

Food choices always depend on my mood. Out of Africa has my favourite samosas because I absolutely love the green sauce. Everything is good so I let Makena decide when I am hungry enough for a full meal. La Sazon de Mexico is amazing, but I love their Mexican breakfast which I get on Saturday. Wednesday is my day to try something else. If I decide to have bread then I have to choose between: Chef Ross’ smoked salmon on a bagel (he has many other great things including a lobster roll but I crave the smoked salmon if I get anything else); or The Hearth’s cheese, sprouts and tomato sandwich on homemade bread. Finally, I will go to Shaddy’s for a falafel. That does not even begin to cover all the other great things. These are my repeated choices.

Nurturing Essence Raw Chocolate is always my dessert. Any time I host an event I get Katlin to choose some treats for me to share. I love chocolate but this raw chocolate is my favourite by far.

The Charlottetown Farmers Market is open on Saturday and Wednesday from 9 am to 2 pm in the summer. In the winter, it goes back to a Saturday only market. If you are in Charlottetown any of those days you have to check it out.
