It's been quite a while since I've been to Eastern Market in DC. I really love that place: great produce, beautiful flowers, jewelry stands, craft stands, European greeting cards and great people watching.
When Anna's friend, Angela, who was visiting DC from Birmingham told me she was meeting some of her friends at Eastern Market this past Sunday, I was more than happy to leave my messy apartment, loads of laundry and grocery shopping list and to meet her!
Amazingly, the Metro did not have any delays, and so I had a bit of time to spare before meeting Angela and her friends. I stopped by at Peregrine Espresso and ordered hot chocolate (see the photo on the left).
After brunch at Banana Cafe, which brought back great memories of my dinner there with Laura, Jenny and Carlos, we walked around Eastern Market.
The fresh blueberries and peaches (together with an article in Southern Living, where Angela works and Anna interned) inspired me to make Blueberry & Peach Cake that night (will be posting that later this week).
Look at these tomatoes! Who cares that they are not perfectly shaped? I think their funny-looking form gives them more character, and they are full of flavor! And then there were buckets and buckets of gorgeous flowers.
The only thing I ended up buying was a pair of turquoise earrings.
