Around DC - Union Market

This weekend Dr. B and I went on a little adventure in our own city to Union Market. For D.C. readers, if you haven't been, it's definitely worth a trip, and for everyone else, add it to the list of things to see next time you come to the great District of Columbia. 
In the original location of Centre Market, which first opened in 1871, this collection of 40 local artisans has a similar feel to the Oxbow Public Market in Napa (still thinking about our visit there). With fresh vegetables and fruit, incredible baked goods, meat, cheese, dairy products, and coffee, you've got endless options to satiate whatever you are craving. You can even get your knives sharpened while you eat and shop! 
At one end of the market is Salt & Sundry, a darling tabletop boutique owned by food writer Amanda McClements (check out her blog). 
I walked away with these Mydrap gingham napkins
Add these to the list of "Products We Love." They come in a roll of 20 and tear off like paper towels. But the cool thing is that you can wash and dry them up to six times. If you can't get to Amanda's store, Mydrap offers placemats and dinner, lunch, and cocktail napkins in an assortment of designs and colors and in linen or cotton online

We'll definitely be going back to Union Market soon.
