Not Your Mama’s Market

Over the weekend, I attended the Atlanta Underground Market, a monthly private event showcasing food from a variety of different vendors – mostly home cooks and small businesses. The particular theme of this month’s event was brunch and it featured delicious food from over 20 different vendors. Some of my favorites were the Arepa with winter Vegetables, roasted Butternut squash, eggplant, collard greens, caramelized onions, black beans and Strawberry Margarita cookie. With all this great food, there was only one problem: my eyes were much bigger than my stomach.

There were so many different things that I wanted to try, but I was just too full. I wanted to take some food home, but didn’t have the extra hands. Next time, however, I’m going to take a cue from my fellow event attendees and bring a reusable grocery bag with me for leftovers. I’m kind of kicking myself for not being able to take home more of that delicious food. The people who brought their own bags had the right idea!
