I had a great weekend at the pop-up Super Duper Market in Chelsea. There were so many great people and vendors there!
I met the awesome cartoonist Maira Kalman, who was there because she illustrated a very useful book about healthy and delicious food. I also met AndrewAndrew–yes it’s two guys but one name. I think they are mainly DJs and performers but they also bake the cutest cookies in the world!! I meant to take a picture of the one I got, but I was too busy eating it!
I met Neesa Peterson, who owns Imperial Woodpecker Sno-balls at 124 MacDougall St. Her New Orleans-style snow cones were so fluffy and refreshing, they would have been good even without syrup, but we had pear! Delicious! (You can check her out at www.iwsnoballs.com)
Speaking of delicious, my friend isaac and I ate two whole bags of King County beef jerky (www.kingcountyjerky.com). It was VERY good.
Did you know you can get Montral-style bagels right in NYC? I didn’t until I saw Mile End Deli at the Super Duper Market. I plan on visiting their store at 53 Bond. St. one day soon.
There were so many other great products there. These are just a few. Thanks to Paper Magazine for organizing it! I hope they do it again! BUT . . .
The fun didn’t stop after the weekend. On Monday, my camp group visited Eataly in the Flatiron District. It’s a huge Italian marketplace and restaurant complex. I might dream about the fresh, homemade mozzarella we sampled!
ONE LAST THING: Don’t forget that I’ll be using random.org to pick a winner in the summertime “veggie” contest later this week. If you haven’t already entered, you still have time!
