I made it to Union Market! Here are some snapshots of my visit.
First my friend Allison and I had to eat lunch at one of the cute restaurants in the large, open, inside space that is Union Market. We chose to eat at Rappahannock Oysters Co. since I had heard so many wonderful things about it.
Allison and I both decided to try a Mandarin Orange Maine Root soda. It was delicious!
As we were sipping our sodas, we perused the menu deciding what we wanted to order.
I decided to order the fried oyster pancake.
Allison got the tuna tartare.
We decided to split a crab cake as well.
After we were properly stuffed, we walked around the market for a bit.
I decided to pick up a variety of sausages at a butcher kiosk.
We enjoyed a little wine tasting (and then promptly bought a bottle of a wine we sampled) at Cordial.
Then we strolled over to the produce booths as we both wanted to pick up some veggies and fruits.
While I am a sucker for fresh flowers, I resisted the urge to buy any at Union Market.
Good to note, there is a nice little outdoor area where people can sit (or lay out) and play field games.
I will definitely be coming back here this summer and strongly suggest you do as well!
