On Saturday morning, my friend Amanda and I went to the Green Bay farmer’s market. We wanted to spend some time together before I leave for Canada, and we figured the farmer’s market and brunch would be fun since the weather was supposed to be so nice. This year the market moved to Washington Street (from Broadway), and it was a little different than I remember from last year. But, I’ve actually never been to the morning market, so I’m probably not the best judge.
I found that there wasn’t as much produce as I would have liked, but there were lots of stands with tons of local vendors and lots of fun things to try out. We had fancy ice teas, sampled kombucha and organic baby food, tried the cake pops, and Amanda even tried a macaron for the first time – peach champagne flavored with pretty edible glitter on it. It was really pretty.
After the market, we walked over to Broadway and went for brunch at Kavarna, a local coffee shop/cafe that’s been in Green Bay forever. Surprisingly, I’ve never actually eaten there, but they have a lot of vegetarian/vegan friendly food, really good hummus and the most amazing rose water lemonade ever ( which I’m totally going to try making at home soon). Plus, they have bottomless iced coffee.
Theresa and Sarah joined us after they had just finished the pet walk, and we had coffees while they ate they’re lunch. Then, we just hung out and chatted – and got refills on our iced coffees.
