Stocking Up at the West Side Market

What with the snow, the cold, and the unpredictable baby moods, we have not gone to the West Side Market nearly as often as we used to.  At one time it was a weekly trip, then an every other week trip, and now it's about once a month if we're lucky.

So when we go, we really stock up.  We came from from last Saturday's vist to the market with:
  • Coffee beans
  • Sour cream
  • Butter
  • Eggs
  • Pistacios
  • Almonds (both whole and as a butter)
  • Chocolate covered raisins
  • Paprika
  • Salt
  • Parsley (fresh and dried kinds)
  • Peppercorns
  • Scallops
  • Tilapia
  • Squid
  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Honey (jars and sticks)
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Chicken
  • Ground turkey
  • Beef (London broil, ground, and brisket)
  • Pork
  • Bacon
  • Ham shanks
  • Hungarian peppers
  • Potatoes (Yukon, Idaho, and fingerlings)
  • Garlic
Foodgoat carried all this with GoatSpawn, who was singing away along with the band on the balcony, on his back.  And now we have ample supplies to last us a few weeks.

  1. I love the Westside market! I used to go an flirt with Mike one of the vegetable guys and he would give me an amazing deal. Unfortunately, he started working somewhere else and now I have to pay full price :( Even so, one of the best parts about Cleveland. Thanks for keeping it exciting. And I hope your baby gets fat.
