Union Market DC – Worth The Trip

Hey There,

As promised more info about my Satuday trip to DC and Union Market.  Here is link with all things going on – address etc.  http://unionmarketdc.com/market/ It is really a great spot and so worth the trip in to town  – weekend traffic and all!  Mike and I really enjoy these kind of pop up food vendor/markets.  It is like sport to us.  Everyone starts out at a 5 on scale of 1 – 10 and can go up and down from there.  Just know that if your a restaurant and your the server at our table, if you 1. crouch down, 2. sit on achair backwards 3. touch either on of us like your an old friend – 4. tell us everything move you make before hand like ” im going to get yur water and I’m going to see if your food is ready to pic up and let you knowthe status……” there will be many many points taken away my friend. – fair warning.  Anywho, the neighborhood is considered NOMA – we went for http://www.takorean.com  and stayed for the rest.

TOLI MOLI – so yummy texture odd but couldnt stop eating it. http://unionmarketdc.com/retailer/toli-moli/ 

I meant for the sign to be outta focus and focus on food – didn’t work this time (new camera focal point) …. hmm next time it’ll be better

The employee here was really helpful I had one of their classics forgot the name but they feature jellies and syrups made from scratch using fresh, healthy and natural ingredients, cups are stacked with superfoods and love. AWE…….. It’s the best dessert you’ve never had.  I believe mine was the first listed #faloodas the Royal – with pomegranate and rosewater a classic version of their street food. We also went GAGA for this bread – really are you kidding me?  You know you wanna lick the screen right now – Did I go to far?

It is from LYON BAKERY http://unionmarketdc.com/retailer/lyon-bakery/  

Craft Kombucha was on the list http://unionmarketdc.com/retailer/craft-kombucha-pop-up/    

Than it was #Oystertime  http://unionmarketdc.com/retailer/rappahannock-oyster-co/ 

Such a cool hip spot a real fresh cocktail bar and perfectly briney, cold oysters.  I even had a few grilled!  Well done Rappahannock well done.

There was a spot called the TASTE LAB – where small start ups go create share and use a common kitchen etc.  This is where I met Pauline of http://www.mumtails.com  Mocktails made with fresh ingrediants – something I adore http://unionmarketdc.com/retailer/tastelab/  We also bought some green chili jerkey and home made dog treats for @abethenewfoundland our pup.  Not as good as my puppy muffins but not too shabby.  There was a lot we didnt try like this dessert stall but we will be back for sure – serves 4?  My foot – I see myself in a back parking lot somewhere with a plastic fork and dark sunglasseson.  HAHA I crack myself up – why cuz it way true!  My mom and I used to do that when we left Giant –  after getting our grocerys we’d pull over with a huge slice of NY style cheesecake and eat it in the car before we got home!  Gosh I miss that women just one of the many many reasons.   

Well this should be enough to peak your interests  – so many other places to try BTW RED APRON is there and more full scale restaurnts – I think I saw PIZZA?  Let me know your thoughts and what is your favorite market in the DMV.  I’ve been to Belvedere Square (Hex Ferments) https://www.hexferments.comin Baltimore, Lexington Market Baltimore as well (Faidleys) http://www.faidleyscrabcakes.com and Reading Terminal in Philly ( DiNic’s Baby) http://tommydinics.com .  San Fran is on my bucket list too – I’d be crazy for that market I’m sure!

Ciao,

XOXO Lori
