Grooving & Grubbing Locally: North Union Farmers Market

The North Union Farmers Market runs several markets across the city and into the suburbs, but the one downtown in Playhouse Square has become an office favorite. My coworkers and I accepted an impromptu challenge to taste test every flavor of popcorn that Kernels by Chrissie has to offer. (A personal favorite is pictured below: Coconut Curry Caramel Corn.)

Typically, there’s a different featured band each week. A few weeks ago, Panic! Trinidad Steel Drum Band performed, another week was a preview of the show A Million Dollar Quartet, and most recently was Brazilian bossa nova artist Moises Borges.  I would be hard-pressed to find a better way to spend a lunch hour: strolling through cheeses, pies, popcorn and hot sauces while listening to great local music!

Here is a clip of Moises Borges playing:
