The last day of the Experience Columbus, A Diverse & Delicious Culinary Tour dawned bright and early and we made our way over to the North Market where we were turned loose with three things: a shopping bag full of goodies, gift certificates and 'orders' to take a look around and obtain breakfast.
Local produce from The Greener Grocer was tempting.
I barely resisted the turquoise plates at The Source and only managed to escape by remembering my propensity for dropping and chipping pretty dishes. I admired the handmade ravioli at Pastaria Seconda and had a quiet chuckle when another worker at the North Market muttered something about them being 'not homemade.' Perhaps they weren't but they were attractive and one of my fellow bloggers had some for breakfast and confirmed they were delicious!
It was a little too early for anything from The Barrel & the Bottle but several of us had the foresight to purchase some for later. I regret not seeing if they had anything from Rockmill Brewery and picking it up to take home.
After I took a walk around the market I remembered my 'orders' to obtain breakfast and began at A Touch of Earth coffee. They had a 'Buckeye' Mocha on the menu and I couldn't resist even though I was a little unsure how peanut butter would taste in coffee. I shouldn't have worried; pair peanut butter with chocolate and it doesn't matter what else you put it with. It's always good. The Buckeye tasted like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup with a caffeniated kick.
And then, look what I found. Or should I say...my nose?
