After my lovely lunch at Eve, I wandered around the Kerrytown area and did some exploring.
There is a thriving farmers market - lots of vegetables and fruit and jewelry for sale.
Zingerman's Deli is a popular place. I've never eaten here, but it always has a long line of people ordering sandwiches and other goodies. It is almost claustrophobic, a lot packed into a small space - the deli counter, bread counter, cheese and meats, and a small area PACKED with pricey gourmet goods. There are picnic table outside and another building set up as a coffee shop with Zingerman's homemade ice creams and pastries.
My favorite splurge purchase at Zingerman's is the Summer Fling Coffeecake. I have tried to duplicate it using my Coconut Poundcake recipe. I noticed that they use lime oil in the ingredient list - I may try that next time.
There are lots of little shops in the area. My favorite discovery was a shop called "Found." It is an funky antique and gift store - they sell all kinds of old items that are repurposed. They also have a neat collection of items that could be used for collages or projects. You know how I love to remix items, so this was store was so inspiring. Unfortunately my parking meter was almost out of time, or else I would have spent more time here!
Of course these button bracelets caught my attention.......
......as did this cute set of blue and white tin toy dishes. I definitely need to go back here to do some more browsing!
